CVS Dumps Smokes — E-Cigs on the Horizon?

CVS has announced it will stop selling tobacco products this October, leading many to wonder if it could be a precursor to a shift to electronic cigarettes.

“We wouldn’t speculate on how the FDA will decide about this product. We will evaluate once their decision is made.”
-CVS Spokesman Michael DiAngelis

For now, the jury is out. While CVS has clearly stated they will halt the sale of tobacco in their stores, they’re taking a cautious stance when it comes to e-cigarettes, which are not currently carried in CVS stores.

CVS currently takes in as much as $2 billion annually in cigarette sales, according to estimates.

President Obama, himself a former smoker, called the move by CVS a “powerful example.”
