Last week's announcement that CVS will no longer sell cigarettes or any other tobacco products should be welcomed as a significant step in reducing smoking and improving health in America.

We can encourage CVS competitors to stop selling tobacco products by supporting CVS with our drug and convenience store purchases.

There is no more effective way to have other companies join CVS than by affecting their revenue.
