Legislation Would Ban Tobacco Sales At Pharmacies

Albany, N.Y. - A bill that could lead to a ban on 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 25,000 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.
