    I don't think they will stop selling tobacco products. Maybe they'll stop selling regular cigarettes because of the smoke. But they'll probably keep E cigarettes and chewing tobacco around. http://www.apexpharmacies.com

    What a marketing ploy. Maybe they should also stop selling soda (pop), candy, energy drinks...

    It may be a profit loss for CVS. Anyway Obama can buy his cigarettes at Walgreens.

    A few may follow suit, many probably will not.

    No, I think the other pharmacies are laughing their asses off and stocking their shelves.

    I hope so, but I think the jury is still out on whether or not CVS will stick to this. I am all for personal freedom, but I can see the company's point: It's too big an irony for a store dedicated to health maintenance to sell a toxic product. They should probably review their liquor sales, but I'm guessing that is too large a profit stream to eliminate.
    Tobacco companies have already shifted their interest to non-U.S. markets so they are unlikely to put up much resistance.

    So should they stop selling candy, GMO tainted potato chips and sugar laden drinks? They do, after all, service diabetics and obese people. Should they also stop selling all the toxic cosmetic products that are known to contain chemicals harmful to people? There are hundreds more examples I could use to show the hypocrisy in this. I believe it is a purely financial reason and nothing more. They've just dressed it up to make it seem like something else. Of course, I am a cynic.

    Where there's a buck to be made, somebody's going to make it.

    I'm going to invest in other pharmacies right now. Smokers are going to buy cigarettes no matter what. I might as well profit from their addiction.

    My Walgreens stock is always solid. Thanks, CVS.

    They probably should, but money is what drives corporations, and not selling cigarettes will cost CVS plenty in sales and profit.

    That said, Good for you CVS

    I've always thought a pharmacy selling cigarettes was kind of an oxymoronic idea.

    Kind of like AA meeting at a bar.

    If they do, they will lose my patronage.

    I think the other pharmacies will enjoy the added revenue because of CVS's decision.
