White House Calls on Stores to ‘Follow
Example’ of CVS, Quit Selling Tobacco

PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 9/4/2014 1:07:14 PM

The White House issued special praise for drugstore chain CVS for its decision to stop selling tobacco products. The chain announced the move in conjunction with changing its name to CVS Health. CVS had planned to stop selling tobacco Oct. 1, but bumped the day up to Wednesday. “Along with the start of CVS Health, the sale of cigarettes and tobacco products at CVS/pharmacy ends today,” Larry J. Merlo, president and CEO of CVS Health, said in a statement. “By eliminating cigarettes and tobacco products from sale in our stores, we can make a difference in the health of all

Comments:
I´m glad this White House has their priorities straight! s/o The only thing that is surprising is that the Communists in the Democrat party haven´t tried to pass a bill ordering all other stores to stop selling tobacco products. How will they pay for all those uninsured children without those taxes??

0bama, besides being a closet cigarette smoker, is a pothead and probably still does cocaine (told by his drug dealer). There is no record or mention of him going to rehab, even though this is suppose to be a very addictive drug. {I once saw the aftermath of a young women ODing from it in an emergency room).

“By eliminating cigarettes and tobacco products from sale in our stores, we can make a difference in the health of all Americans.”

Sounds like a liberal who just *knows* things. In fact, he has no evidence for or against this assumption.

And how will they make up for all of the lost tobacco tax revenue? First they try to shame people into quitting smoking, and then after those people gain weight from not smoking anymore, they shame them for being fat. These jokers are truly something else.

Leftist propagandists just can´t help lying. When they say so many thousands die from smoking, it is because if you EVER smoked, and you die from any cause, it is counted as a "smoking related death." Then all the propagandists make the jump to saying that smoking CAUSED the death. On almost any subject, leftists lie about the basic premise, make a jump to something else, and trumpet it as the truth. Smoking, Global Warming, the "97% of scientists" that believe in AGW, the Spotted Owl, Wolf introduction, etc. etc.

The original 1964 Surgeon General report on smoking noted that people who smoked pipes exclusively and did not inhale (as most pipe smokers do not) actually lived a bit longer than non-smokers. A follow-up S.G. report lowered the longevity numbers a bit but showed no statistically significant difference in life expectancy between pipe smokers and non-smokers

Just like a few restaurants decided to go smoke-free, but lost customers as a result.

So they go the government to force ALL restaurants to go smoke free so that they would not have to pay the price for their own decisions.

All was lost was the OTHER restaurants rights.

Socialism dies when it runs out of other folks money.

As a former smoker I find all of this incredibly ridiculous! People are going to smoke, its their business, not the White House´s.

All any of this does is raise the price per pack - I was up $8.20 a pack before I quit five years ago up from 6.50 in a year´s time.

This is just one more personal freedom of choice 0bama and his posse are trying to take away.

Just Say No to the clueless one and his buds!

You think they return the "donations´ given to them by the major tobacco companies. You aware that Senator Gillibrand, D-NY, was an attorney for Philip Morris- now Altria- promoting tobacco sales. These people just go whichever way the political wind blows. and with the legalization of M. in Colorado and possibly other States, what will the WH say about those "drugs", which are far more harmful than tobacco.

Looks like smokers have NO human rights.
I recently saw a certified death certificate and was shocked to see a box (to be checked)if the deceased smoked. The deceased could have drowned, or been killed in an acident, but that box had to be checked if the deceased smoked!
There was no box to check if the deceased drank alcohol or had abortions or was homosexual.
Only smoking was singled out.
Can we say manipulation of statistics?

Any studies to prove tobacco farmers have more cancer than average ? It´s the garbage they put in filters that kills you.

Tobacco is a big export, especially to China.

Shortly after Breitbart News revealed that the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City (ISGOC) had deleted its past two Friday sermons from its website, the mosque responded by making the sermons again available to the public. The motive behind why the mosque decided to originally remove the two sermons, which were held before and shortly after congregation member and Islamist radical Alton Nolen allegedly brutally beheaded an innocent woman-- and then decided to again bring the links back on the website-- remains unknown. What Breitbart News uncovered through the two sermons was the closeness in the relationship between the mosque and the

A mosquito-borne virus that can cause debilitating joint pain lasting for years has spread to the continental U.S. after infecting hundreds of thousands of people in the Caribbean and Central America. The virus is called Chikungunya, an African name meaning “to become contorted.” While the illness, first identified in Tanzania in 1952, has long bedeviled Africa and Asia, the only recorded cases in the U.S. before July involved patients who contracted the virus abroad. Now, 11 cases have been confirmed as originating in Florida, spurring concern this may be the beginning of the type of explosive growth seen elsewhere from

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,
