HOUSTON, TX- If you're a smoker, then strike CVS off your list for getting your "fix".

The pharmacy giant is no longer selling tobacco products at its stores.

Plus, it's changing it's name too... introducing, CVS Health.

CVS Health estimates removing tobacco products will cost about $2 billion dollars in annual sales.

But that's a fraction of its revenue which totaled $126 billion dollars last year. The huge revenue is thanks to big growth in its healthcare services like walk-in clinics and prescription drug coverage.

It's clear the new and improved CVS Health doesn't need any snuff or cigarettes to keep business smoking!
