AACP applauds the CVS/pharmacy commitment to discontinue the sale of all tobacco products in more than 7,600 U.S. stores by October 1, 2014. Based on policy adopted by the AACP House of Delegates in 2003, AACP urges pharmacies that sell cigarettes and other tobacco products to discontinue doing so. In addition, AACP policy supports member colleges and schools giving preference to pharmacies that do not sell these products as sites for clerkships and experiential learning.
