B*llsh*t!!!! This is the most incredibly Orwellian load of doublespeak I have heard in a decade! CVS is a drug store... a damn drug store. CVS's announcement today that will stop selling tobacco and is now calling itself a "Health Care Company" is so idiotic and inane.
Most folks today consider tobacco a "drug" so it seems to me a drug store would be the APPROPRIATE store to sell a LEGAL drug of that sort. I might argue whether tobacco is a drug, but the idea of CVS stopping it because it is into "health" is nonsense, pure and simple.
CVS is pulling out tobacco because tobacco is unpopular and being demonized and the company wants to earn a bit of publicity and free ad time to boost it's profits. CVS is simply a STORE that happens to specialize in selling drugs amongst a helluva lot of other stuff.
I bet that within 5 years when more and more places begin selling marijuana as more places are legalizing it. CVS will start selling it. Health Care Comany, my *ss! I am glad I have never frequented our local CVS... Such a stupid company.
