On a slow day, I inquired about this to the cashier at Walgreen
(Pharmacy), more than 10 years ago. But she didn't seem to understand
what I was talking about, and she that she "only worked there
part-time". So in case you have any questions about what some of these
cashiers are really thinking about, I offer you that data point! ; )
You are a little slow Leon.
This whole thing got started when the city of San Francisco enacted
prohibiting sale of tobacco products in drug stores 8-10 years ago.
CVS, as well as the big box stores, and the tobacco companies tried to
it but learned again that you don't fight city hall.
Everybody else dropped their law suits against S/F.
CVS decided to not fight and instead complied so extending this across
7600 stores is not such a big deal for them to implement.
This morning's news say Walgreens is examining the policy contemplating a
similar policy change.
"CVS cigarette move urges action by Walgreens, rivals"
"Walgreen instead launches a free, Internet-based smoking cessation program"
