No Cigarettes in My Pharmacy sign now

I live in Newton, Massachusetts, about a mile from a CVS pharmacy.
It is where I do my business. Most Americans in cities and suburbs live pretty close to a local pharmacy, I think. But I am concerned that these stores sellscigarettes...and these are in a pharmacy business, where nearly every product is health-related....

So CVS...even the company's own "Vision Statement" says the company
is committed to helping people live longer, healthier lives...And this particular pharmacy is near a high school, Newton North, where kids ask adults about to enter if they'd buy cigarettes...if there were no cigarettes for sale, the option would be unavailable.

This week, the CVS store's own in-house magazine for customers (Winter issue) proclaims from the cover page, "Kick Smoking's Butt," and inside lists ten tips to stopping smoking...including "build obstacles." (The magazine is online at cvsaisle1.com). Yet CVS sells the cigarettes...eliminating them would be a pretty good obstacle, don't
you think?

How about it? How about asking CVS to stop selling cigarettes? And Walgreens, Eckerds, any other "health" stores?

Please join me. I assume this will not be easy, because cigarette sales make CVS money...but they'd gain measurable public relations benefits by being the first to do the right thing.

Please sign my petition below. Give your name and address and if you are under 18, say so, because young people have even more of a voice on this...I think 100 signers will make a difference. Thank you.
