Bill seeks to prohibit cigarette sales in New York supermarkets with pharmacies

New York State Assembly member Sam Hoyt, (D, Buffalo) has introduced a bill that would prohibit the sale of tobacco products in any stand-alone pharmacy or establishment that contains a pharmacy. The bill was proposed one week after Wegmans, Rochester, N.Y., announced its plans to eliminate the sale of cigarettes and other tobacco in its stores. Convenience stores and stores that stock only non-prescription medications would not be affected by the bill.
