Committee To Vote On Tobacco Sales Ban

Albany, N.Y. - The state Senate Health Committee will vote today on a bill that could lead to a ban on the sale of tobacco products at pharmacies.

If approved, pharmacies would have one year to follow the ban or face a two-thousand dollar fine for each violation. Supporters say the legislation would be a big step towards limiting exposure to potentially dangerous products.

Tobacco companies say they're worried about the impact on their business.
