Daly City Recently Banned Pharmacies from Selling Cigarettes
“Daly City’s elected officials recently moved to amend the town’s already-strict smoking ordinance to further restrict the sale, distribution and use of tobacco products.
In a unanimous vote, the City Council agreed to prohibit the sale of tobacco products at pharmacies, prevent tobacco product sellers from offering free samples and expand the city’s second-hand smoke restriction to include sidewalks adjacent to apartment buildings, places of employment and other public spaces.
In addition to affecting retailers like Walgreens, which has three stores in Daly City, the ban on tobacco sales at pharmacies will also apply to supermarkets that have on-site pharmacies, like Safeway and Lucky. Target stores with pharmacies will be unaffected because they do not currently sell tobacco products. The town’s two CVS pharmacies will also be unaffected, because CVS discontinued tobacco sales last year.” SF Examiner – Read full article
Wouldn’t it be nice if Pharmacies were for health and didn’t sell cigarettes? If you live in Pacifica and other towns around, take this poll and help us make it so!
Please take the poll and share. Thank you.
