CVS to Stop Selling Tobacco Products: Major Policy Change

Wednesday’s headlines brought us the news that CVS stores will  stop selling tobacco smoking-167066_640[1]products by October 1st.  As CVS is moving into providing healthcare in addition to drugs, it’s no surprise that Larry J. Merlo, president and CEO of CVS Caremark, said in a statement, “Put simply, the sale of tobacco products is inconsistent with our purpose.”

In light of this news, we are delighted to provide free access for a limited time to several  articles that focus on behavior and policy change relative to tobacco use:

Business & Management INK

Business and Management INK puts the spotlight on research published in our more than 100 management and business journals. We feature an inside view of the research that’s being published in top-tier SAGE journals by the authors themselves.
