    Might cost them millions or even billions a year but their CEO (I just heard him speak) said it was the right thing.
    I might disagree with it, but I won't argue against it because it is their choice. I firmly believe that it should be up to the business owner to allow the sale or use of ANY legal item in their establishments.

    Here's one worse: We have a Children's Hospital with a McDonald's restaurant in the lobby. To me, a huge conflict and irresponsible.

    I love a good (cheep) cheeseburger occasionally myself but think it should be separate from any hospital.
