QUOTE: “The United States itself was born a Triple Package nation, with an outsize belief in its own exceptionality, a goading desire to prove itself to aristocratic Europe (Thomas Jefferson sent a giant moose carcass to Paris to prove that America’s animals were bigger than Europe’s) and a Puritan inheritance of impulse control.”

CVS Will Stop Selling Tobacco Products by October

MORE: I have been buying pharmacy and makeup from Walgreen’s online because of free 2-day delivery over $25 (and Target and Kroger for brick and mortar point of sales, Target has lousy online selection and Kroger has great coupons, Walgreen’s had both beat) but based on this major positive move and privacy issues, I am going to explore a complete switch to CVS. I’m a vehement anti-smoker and have long advocated my support for retailers and restaurants that would support my ideal smoke-free world.
