Tobacco in pharmacies counterproductive

December 29, 2013

When you think about pharmacies, the expectation is that the pharmacy is there to help you maintain your health and well being. Why do you usually visit your local pharmacy? To pick up medication prescribed by your doctor, to buy something over the counter to aid an ailment you may have had, or to get a flu shot or other vaccination that was being offered. Today, some pharmacists even provide product information and advice, and when you leave, they say "be well." One expectation that we do not have of our pharmacies is that they would sell merchandise that would harm us or negatively affect our health. So why do some pharmacies sell tobacco products, and what can you as the consumer do about it?
