Do retail drugstores in your area sell tobacco products?

I don't know, I don't smoke so I've never looked or asked. I cheated - chickencookie said yes below, so I'm going with yes.

I also rarely use retail pharmacies. (Only if I'm in a pinch and that's what's nearby.) The only place I KNOW sells tobacco products is Wawa. I forget if they still use those rip away calendars. I don't go to convenience stores much either.

Yes, all of them as far as I know. I've never seen a CVS - just Walgreens and Rite Aid.

Yes they all do. It is sort of a conflict of interest when you think about it.

Most of them, but some have done away with the displays. NY is working on legislation to hide all displays because they serve as "tobacco marketing, and promote youthful addiction". Stores can still sell the products, but they couldn't be visible...

We have a CVS and a Wallgreens 10 blocks from one another. Interesting to see how they do financially when it happens.

I assume so, but I don't know for sure. I know that the big grocery store does, but not my hippie grocer.

I've never understood the logic even though I've seen it here in the south forever. Anyone give me a reasonable stance for why it makes sense? (Other than Captitalism! 'Murica! etc)
