Couldn't agree more, Dr. Young. I actually just commented on a similar post. Even fi you just focused on cosmetic issues, smoking stains your teeth ( http://jamesstewartdds.com/cosmetic-dentist.h... ).
......as does coffee, tea and soda.

<quoted text>Hi its me, dumbass, we are talking about CVS and cigarettes and their hypocritical beahvior.
Think about all the sweet junk food they sell to these 400lb beasts that are unable to even properly take a bath. Matter of fact, some of us fat ass cows are physically unable to wipe their own ass.
Sounds bad

there is literally nothing healthy about smoking, say what you will about all the other unhealthy stuff, in moderation it can be good for you, but NOT smoking. It will cause cancer plus other issues that are avoidable.

I only worry about how the loss will effect hours.

No, smoking isn't healthy.

Neither is chewing gum, and CVS sells chewing gum. It can lead to cavities, as well as other issues which are avoidable.

You all banning gum any time soon?

Walgreens will pick up the slack on tobacco sales and their employees won't be worrying about their hours being cut. You can be healthy and broke. Good for you, I guess.

Actually it rids the gene pool of many of them. We don't want them reproducing.

Good! Smoking can not only lead to cancer, but increase the risk of gum disease and the tooth loss that often accompanies it. If you smoke, I urge you to quit or undergo regular screenings for gum disease, like these: http://drsohl.com/relaxation.php
Please note they are not Stopping their ALCOHOL sales. What can Alcohol lead to? Alcoholism , maybe???? Taking out cigarrettes was a Pure Publiicity Stunt. And trust and believe They will cover that loss in other ways.They could actually CARE LESS about you or your health, Just like any other Business.The only People they REALLY Care about are the Stockholders.

A glass of wine a day is actually healthy. Tobacco is in no way shape or form healthy at all.
Some do abuse alcohol just like some abuse junk food and prescription meds, but you can't stop selling it all based on a small group of abusers.
Not selling tobacco is a great statement by cvs.

They will stop tobacco but will continue selling homeopathic craps? I guess water at $10 an ounce is more profitable.
