An Open Letter to CVS Pharmacies

TO:  Mr. Larry Merlo, President, CEO of CVS/Caremark

Hats off to you for your decision to discontinue selling cigarettes and tobacco products at CVS pharmacies.  It’s rare and refreshing for Corporate America to put the best interest of the consumers above profit.  As a trial lawyer, I usually see it the other way around.

For your company to make a $1.5 billion decision to help protect Americans is absolutely breath-taking.  Congratulations on your decision and your principles.
