BILL NUMBER:S7106 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to the display of tobacco products in pharmacies SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends Article 13-F of the public health law by adding a new section 1399-ccc requiring licensed retail pharmacies and other retail stores with a licensed pharmacy on the premises, that sell tobacco products shall only display tobacco products including, but not limited to, tobacco, cigarettes, and cigars, in a manner so that display of tobacco products is covered out of view from the public. Such covering shall be determined by the management of the retail store. This section shall apply to both chain and non-chain pharmacies that operate in the state of New York. Section 2 provides the effective date. JUSTIFICATION: The vast majority of tobacco marketing is focused on the point of sale and retail locations are the primary place where tobacco companies recruit new tobacco users. Tobacco marketing inside the retail environ- ment is often found in the form of "power walls." The term "power wall" refers to tobacco product displays set up behind the cash register.
