Maine CDC and the US Department of Health and Human Services applaud CVS Caremark Corp. for their leadership in helping to make the next generation tobacco-free.
The company's announcement that CVS/pharmacy stores will no longer sell cigarettes and other tobacco products is an unprecedented step in the retail industry. We look forward to seeing other stores and chains follow suit.
