[New York] EDITORIAL: Sale of tobacco products is incompatible with the healthful goal of pharmacies

The effort in Erie County to ban stores with pharmacies from selling cigarettes and e-cigarettes would close the “disconnect” that allows stores dedicated to health to sell a product that damages health. Along the way, it might also save some taxpayer m
