No smoning graphicWednesday brought us the news that the CVS drugstore chain, citing its greater focus on promoting better health, will stop selling tobacco products at its more than 7,600 stores by October. “Put simply, the sale of tobacco products is inconsistent with our purpose,” Larry J. Merlo, president and CEO of parent company CVS Caremark, said in a statement.

In light of this news, SAGE is providing free access for a limited time to several  articles that focus on behavior and policy change relative to tobacco use:

Sage, the parent of Social Science Space, is a global academic publisher of books, journals, and library resources with a growing range of technologies to enable discovery, access, and engagement. Believing that research and education are critical in shaping society, 24-year-old Sara Miller McCune founded Sage in 1965. Today, we are controlled by a group of trustees charged with maintaining our independence and mission indefinitely.
