A few months after San Francisco drug stores cleared their inventories of anything with tobacco, a city on the opposite side of the country passed a similar ban. Boston has banned tobacco sales in retail pharmacies as well, but its ban covers all stores that operate pharmacies, not just drug stores.
While Walgreens sued San Francisco over its ban, alleging discrimination, it has accepted the one in Boston without complaint. Health officials in San Francisco might want to pay a little attention to what's happening in Boston because it could help them save a few pennies on legal fees.
