    I wish they actually had some details on the reasons why some pharmacies got the thumbs down.

    I generally use Walgreens to fill my prescriptions, and I see them on the list.

    I just recently got a Costco membership and there is a nearby CVS now, so I'm going to look at switching.  I'll make certain to inform my local Walgreens as to why they are losing my business if I can find more details.

      It would be nice to have it on the official list. I'm guessing that the thumbs down for Walgreens has something to do with this:
      That is what happened to Kathleen Pulz and her husband, who panicked when the condom they were using broke. Their fear really spiked when the Walgreens pharmacy down the street from their home in Milwaukee refused to fill an emergency prescription for the morning-after pill.
      And the way this is supported by official Walgreens policy:
      Walgreens policy allows pharmacists to refuse to dispense drugs they object to.
      I am under the impression that these kinds of refusals aren't at all uncommon; its just that most people are afraid to speak up.
