CVS To Halt Cigarette Sales

Three cheers for CVS!

On Wednesday, the drugstore made the decision to take cigarettes off the shelves of its 7,600 stores. 

According to reports, CVS is the first national chain to eliminate tobacco products in what could be a precedent-setting move if other stores make a similar decision to follow suit. 

Sales are projected to end by Oct. 1. 

What surprises consumers about dangerous products such as cigarettes is the fact that those who are responsible for these dangers often know about the problems and do nothing to fix them.

Unlike other corporations that continue to put profit over safety, CVS -- a healthcare provider -- has made the decision remove a product that is dangerous to the health of consumers. 

CVS is taking accountability through this action and thus keeping its consumers safe.
