Should retail pharmacies heed the request of dozens of state attorneys general that they stop selling tobacco products?

First of all, mentioning the request by "dozens of attorneys general" skews the question.
Tobacco is a product like any other that people consume that has risks, such as high fat content food and especially alcohol, both of which CVS is keeping on its shelves. Alcohol poses just as great a risk to persons who consume it; actually more, due to the countless numbers of lives and families that have been destroyed through alcoholism, cirrhosis of the liver, and drunk driving. With all the traditional talk of alcoholism as a "disease" (it's not; it's an addiction), alcohol should have been pulled from CVS shelves first. Bottom line, the decision by CVS was PR-based.
