CVS Caremark's decision to pull cigarettes and other tobacco products from its stores could ripple beyond the nation's second-largest drugstore chain.
The move, which drew praise from President Barack Obama, doctors and anti-smoking groups when it was announced on Wednesday, puts pressure on other retailers to stop selling tobacco as well. But first they have to overcome their addiction to a product that attracts customers.

I am comparing freedom to tyranny,you liberals are always telling other people what to do,eat,wear,drive,where to live,what to teach your children and how to raise them,the list of the busy body do gooder liberal is endless, but insist that others have no right to tell you what to do or restrict your behavior in any way.
Your suggestion that this nation could have accomplished more is a joke since liberalism has destroyed what we did accomplish there is no reason to think you wouldn't have destroyed that to....the little self righteous,self important,do gooder busy body liberal....a constant threat to freedom everywhere.
Are you and your kind not known for telling people that what other people do with their bodies is their business.....hypocrisy anyone.
I won't go to CVS specifically because they have given in to liberal stupidity and don't be foolish enough to think that they are going to give up 2 billion dollars with no plans of making it up somewhere else.
sTrat, you are comparing apples to oranges. smoking has nothing to do with accomplishments! just think how much more could have been accomplished, if people weren't under the influence of this drug. Plus, being a stench and other people's nostrils.
I'm glad this pharmacy went halfway, anyway. Now if they got rid of all their liquor, it would be the one drug store that would be fitting for Christians and general family use, probably among all the major chains of drug stores.
