New York Times Retrieved from This paper announces that all 7,700 CVS locations nationwide will stop selling products that contain tobacco. Abrams reports that stop selling cigarettes is a strategic move in pharmacies, because what they are looking for is to have a healthy image. In fact, they are about to change its name to "CVS health." They say that at first the sales will be affected but over time will increase because people will start to go for medications, prescriptions and also now people will see it as a place to go and be healthy. This article claims to be important because it can attract the attention of other pharmacies to join to stop selling cigarettes and thus help people quit smoking. Agaku, I. T., King, B.

They demonstrate that rapidly increased consumption of cigarettes, also including electronic cigarettes which are most used by young adults. The results of their research showed that 21.3% of US adults used a tobacco product every day or some days, and 25.2% used a tobacco product every day, some days, or rarely. They believe that the increase in the cost of cigarettes and anti-tobacco mass media campaigns have a great impact in reducing tobacco consumption.
