There is a lot that goes into selling cigarettes, lots gets stolen, and there are tax stamp issues etc, and I think the billions is gross not net. Just a buisness decision I bet, not Obama forcing them to.
God Bless the Marine Corps.

Wouldn't suprise me if CVS is simply looking at their long-term business model and deciding to replace tobacco with medical and recreational marijuana in the future and needed the shelf space.
A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
This is interesting:
"CVS does not sell electronic cigarettes, the highly popular but debated devices that deliver nicotine without tobacco and emit a rapidly vanishing vapor instead of smoke. It said it was waiting for guidance on the devices from the Food and Drug Administration, which has expressed interest in regulating e-cigarettes."
Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
It's up to the business to decide what to sell and not sell. I don't see this as a significant story. We don't shop at CVS.
