Word on the Street: CVS pulling tobacco products from stores by October

Many Bronx viewers say it's a bad business decision, but others support the move. (2/6/14)

THE BRONX - CVS Caremark is making headlines this week after announcing that it will stop selling tobacco products in its stores. 

The company will be the first national pharmacy chain to kick out cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco, even though it'll result in some $2 billion in lost revenue each year. 

News 12 asked viewers if they think others should follow CVS's example, and many thought it's a bad business decision, but others support the move.
