Worcester is close to becoming the ninth city in the state to ban the sale of cigarettes and other tobacco products in pharmacies and drug stores.
After weeks of debate, Tuesday city council members voted to give initial approval on some controversial changes.
One would ban the sale of so called ‘blunt wrappers’ in the city. Another would prohibit tobacco advertising in any store window that is in public view.
The other amendments would ban the sale of tobacco at higher education institutions and in city pharmacies … a change not everyone’s supporting.
