If you're a tobacco user you will no longer be able to buy those products at CVS. CVS says its focusing on customer health and effective today they will no longer sell any tobacco products.

In addition to the tobacco ban there is a corporate name change. CVS Caremark will now be known as CVS Health. The signs on stores will not change however.

The CEO of CVS says they expect to lose two billion dollars annually but believe they can counter that loss through the growth the company may get from health care.
