CVS Officially Ends Tobacco Sales

Written on September 3, 2014 at 4:08 pm , by

Can we get a slow clap for CVS? As of today, the company is completely tobacco-free.

Now CVS Health, the corporation is wiping the carcinogens from shelves in an effort to promote healthier communities, and the decision comes nearly a month earlier than expected. “As a pharmacy innovation company at the forefront of a changing health care landscape, we are delivering breakthrough products and services, from advising on prescriptions to helping manage chronic and specialty conditions,” President and CEO Larry Merlo said in a statement.

Lung cancer is the most preventable cancer in the world, yet remains to be the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society. Want to help CVS raise awareness? Join its social media campaign, #OneGoodReason, and encourage others to live tobacco-free.
