New New York Law Would Ban The Sale Of Tobacco Products At Pharmacies

(Albany, NY) --  A bill that could lead to a ban on the sale of tobacco products at pharmacies will start making its way through the state legislature this week. 

Supporters say it'd be a big step towards limiting exposure to those products which have been known to cause serious health problems.  Data shows 25-thousand New Yorkers die from tobacco-related issues each year. If approved, pharmacies would have one year to follow the ban or face a two-thousand dollar fine for each violation.
