Rubio sees hypocrisy in CVS, pot

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) on Wednesday criticized people who applaud CVS Caremark for dropping tobacco sales — but applaud efforts to make marijuana sales legal.

In a message on Twitter, Rubio suggested there’s a contradiction in applauding CVS on tobacco while cheering the legalization of pot.

Rubio’s comments suggest he sees it as hypocritical to support both positions.

His comments seemed to be aimed at Democrats in particular, who have applauded CVS’s decision throughout the day. Democrats, in general, have been more open to marijuana legalization than their Republican counterparts as well.

Rubio’s comments came after CVS, the nation’s second largest pharmacy, announced it would discontinue selling cigarettes, cigars and chewing tobacco in its stores in order to bolster its reputation as a healthcare provider.
