Boston Bans Cig Sales

Ian Scott on Tuesday, February 10, 2009 at 2:10:00 am

Effective today, pharmacies in Boston can no longer sale tobacco products.  They join San Francisco as the first two cities to ban sales for pharmacies.  San Francisco baned pharmacy sales in September 2008 (click here for the post from this blog).

Last fall, Walgreens challenged the San Francisco ordinance, alleging that it unfairly singled out stand alone pharmacies from other retailers that sell medicines and tobacco products.  That challenge was dismissed (click here for more info), opening the door for today's ordinance in Boston.
