FACT applauds CVS decision

Thank you CVS. You have set a powerful example by announcing that your stores will end the sale of tobacco products throughout the United States by Oct. 1.

When our FACT —Wisconsin’s youth tobacco prevention program — group heard about this, we were very excited. A pharmacy should be a place where health and wellness are modeled, and tobacco products do the exact opposite.

Our group is working hard to let as many teens as possible know about the harmful effects of tobacco. It takes a lot of guts to stand up for what you believe in. Our group does it every day and we’re glad CVS had the courage to make the world a healthier place by not selling tobacco.

Tobacco remains the number one cause of preventable death. Many of us have seen this first hand with family members and friends being sick due to tobacco use.

We hope other stores follow CVS’ lead and make the same pro-health decision they did.

Thanks CVS, for looking out for the health of your customers.
