  • Is it true ? Do US pharmacies sell cigarettes ?

    Is it true you can get BetaBlockers, ECASA, atorvastatin and cigarettes all in the same pharmacy ?

      Actually most American pharmacies are in grocery stores. That way you can get your alcohol, cigarettes, hot pockets, toilet paper, and prescriptions all at the same location. How about that for convenience.

        Most hospitals serve inetible and many times unhealthy food. So, so what if we buy our drugs along with our lifestyle sins?

            And guns!

            At least per 'Bowling in Columbine', you can get them in Wal-Mart. Never checked this myself!

                LIQOUR, GUNS & AMMO

                Now that's just about all you need for a party!

                    Pharmacy? Heck, I've got a machine in my office! I'm now living in the only area I've ever actually seen tobacco hanging in the barns! I think the coal miners have realized that they're just not gonna get sick enough on the pneumoconiosis alone, so if they ever want to make it on to disability, they have to get up to at least 1&1/2 ppd.

                      Not only that, but our federal government takes our income, under threat of imprisonment, and -gives- money to the tobacco growers(a 'buy-out', they call it, although I'm not sure how many have been bought out) to maintain the cost of the product artificially!!!

                        Tobacco related illnesses will take usually help you meet your creator ahead of schedule; more often than not soon after you have paid state, federal and social security taxes all your working life, but before the $20k CABG, hip replacement, and thousands worth of imaging

                          I tell my patients who say"you gotta die from something" that I am an authority on death, and smoking is a miserable way to die, gasping for your last breath or in pain that cannot be alleviated by medication or stroked/gorked out paralyzed with somebody having to wipe your ass.
                          Do you think that's too harsh?

                              Yep, they did. I recall this because it used to be a relatively big deal that the Walgreen's here in town (Dixon, IL) was supposedly the last Walgreen's still carrying alcohol. The rumor I was told was that it was because the Walgreen family has a vacation home/estate on the river and wanted the access to alcoholic beverages from their store here. Don't know if it's true or not.

                              Anyway, the Walgreen's here was remodeled within the last year and the liquor department has been removed too. So much for a small town's claim to fame (other than being Ronald Reagan's hometown of course).
