    St. John Leonardi would not be appropriate for such a pharmacy.  St. Jude is the patron of impossible cases, and starting up a new, independent pharmacy fits well in his portfolio.  Big chains can negotiate hard with drug providers while little chains cannot.  Recent promotions that offer commonly-prescribed generic drugs for $4 or $5 or $100/month do not help.  Such action has crushed independent pharmacists.  

    You would have thought we could have made it happen," Mr. Laird admitted. "We were a niche. We were set up to cater to those who wanted that type of personal service. Once people came in, it was great. The pharmacist did so much more than dispense drugs.

    Oh dear.  That can end in the ER if the pharmacist decides to play doctor.

      which pharmacies  a person can use ...

      In fact, many of them, particularly those that work with Medicare, have their own supply line ..you order over the phone or online

      the only time a person would go to the pharmacy would be for some emergency medication

      I don't understand the ban on cosmetics ... I would how many toiletry items this ban covered..like nice smelling bath lotions or something ...
      (has anyone tried stinking as a method for contraception.. ?  being so unpleasant no one will have sex with you ..)

      I wonder how many anti-contraceptive pharmacists refuse women birth control pills that have been prescribed as hormone replacements or hormone adjustment ...
      Several times I had to take birth control pills, not for contraception, but to regulate various female problems

      Give your heart a real workout! Love your enemies!
