Lawsuit threatening San Francisco pharmacy ban dismissed


An ordinance in San Francisco bans the sale of tobacco in pharmacies; it is the first of its kind in the United States. The rule was enacted in 2008 to cover most pharmacies — strengthened in 2010 to include big-box and grocery stores that include pharmacies. According to an article in the San Francisco Examiner, Walgreens Company filed suit against the city of San Francisco, claiming a constitutional right to sell cigarettes. Their case was dismissed in July, 2011 by a federal court judge who decided that the San Francisco Law is reasonable within their legal power. is a project of Counter Tools. Counter Tools (logo)
