    on the part of this pharmacy. If they're so concerned about what the dispensing of contraceptives "leads to".....then they should also be concerned about almost every other medication they dispense.

    ALL medications have the potential to be abused. Pain meds, anti anxiety meds, Rx sleep meds all have legitimate uses and are desperately needed by some. Should they be eliminated because others may use them improperly? Rx ADD meds are often sold on the street. Glue and aerosol products are also used recreationally for a quick high. Did they stop selling those?

    The pharmacists job is to dispense meds as prescribed by the patient's doctor, look for potential drug interactions and offer advice as to possible side effects, etc. Trying to impose morals on the public doesn't work in govt, and apparently doesn't work in retail either.
