Health Rewind: CVS to Stop Selling Tobacco in Stores Nationwide 

CVS/Caremark announced that come Oct. 1, their stores would no longer carry tobacco products, The New York Times reported. The company will lose $2 billion in sales, but Larry J. Merlo, chief executive of CVS said, “We came to the decision that cigarettes and providing health care just don’t go together in the same setting.”  —Kellee Terrell (@kelleent)
