No Smoke

One of the odd differences between the US and the UK looks as though it may be slipping away. I had previously noted how strange it was that Pharmacies (Chemists in English) sold tobacco; a product at odds with their stated purpose of helping peoples’ health. One of the largest pharmacy chains, CVS, has announced that it will stop selling tobacco later this year; which will wipe $1.5bn from their annual sales, so it was probably not an easy decision for them to make.
