They want people to get ill so they need drugs.
You know it's worked when sombody walks to the back of the store to get something then buys cigarettes too.
The cashier is secretly twiddling a non-existant mustache saying "Bwahaha, our cunning plan to slowly induce sickness on these peasants is working!"
You know, it's not THAT far to the back of the store.
yes, and people might want some privacy when picking up a prescription.
Exactly! Go guineasaurusrex :P
I actually find the thesaurusrex to be more helpful
(Your+name+(optional)): How about the flyingguineasaurusrex?
you're a flyingguineapigasaurusrex, though. Not a flyingguineasaurusrex. Big difference
I often neglect to add the "pig." I feel it is derogatory, a stereotype based on our unusually high squeaking voices.
where's the word?
Yea, but it's far for people who are crippled.
Crippled people need to buy other things from the store though. If prescriptions are too far back for them then so is everything else. You might as well say it is not fair how far back the toothpaste is, because it is too far for the crippled.
They should open a store for crippled people, they can make it like one of those crane games, all they have to do is control the crane throughout the Store and get wtf they want :?
Yes, good idea. Or a giant vending machine, then everything can be in the front. We won't have to complain about how far back the shampoo is.
They're in front? That's crazy! What are they smoki...oh wait.
What if the people getting cigarettes are born from a mother who caused them to be addicted to nicotine since birth, and what if the sick people are sick from doing to much heroin, don't judge.
I'm replying to myself, and that is funny for some reason.
I don't think it's even close to funny, but okay...
No one cares about your personal sense of humour
(Your+name+(optional)): Maybe that's why it's my PERSONAL sense of humor.
And because I said that, it's going to get voted down.
Pharmacies are usually not directly affiliated with the stores they're within, so they want to make a distinction between the store part and the pharmacy part. The pharmacy is the smaller entity within the location so it makes sense that they would get secondary placement. And, as mentioned, the issue of privacy.
Well it's usually different for each one, but say CVS is a drug store company, they also own a pharmacy chain. They would then often have their pharmacies with their stores, but it is often a different chain because they are kept seperate for some reason.
Yes, those are the exact places I'm talking about. The CVS convenience store and CVS pharmacy are both part of CVS, but the two entities are not really affiliated with one another.
Think of it like a branch splitting in two. They both are connected to the larger branch, but the two smaller branches aren't together.
Jesus, just cure us all already.
Only the sinless will be cured, all others will be destroyed on

October 21, 2011
(Your+name+(optional)): Well I have died three times already. Maybe October is my chance?!
Hopefully, if not there's always 2012!
Sweet, now I just have to be sinless until then.
Does that mean you're watching when I'm sleeping?
He knows when you're awake!
Does this mean you're Santa Clause?! :D
But what happens to someone if they're not saved?
(Your+name+(optional)): 4th times the charm!
to add on your list of Doomsdays lol
I'll think about it
(Your+name+(optional)): The day before my 18th birthday :(
I'd kina prefer it if no one but me and the cashier saw I was buying midol or diarrhea medicine. Going to the back is an easier way not to be seen.
If you're a smoker, you probably aren't very healthy.
Maybe they are getting prescription cigarettes?
That's called medical marijuana, bro.
Nah, pretty sure it'd be medical tobacco, considering cigarettes aren't marijuana.
You could make a cigarette out of marijuana
No, that's just a joint
Exactly, what I was going to say.
the whole prescription drug business is corrupt as fuck anyway
It makes a lot of sense. You need quite a bit of space to keep prescription drugs as there are many different kinds and they all need to be quickly and easily accessible at the same time. This space also needs to be inaccessible to customers. It's usually impractical to have a large fenced off area at the front of a shop.
Also, keeping the prescription meds at the back means that people need to walk past all the other stock to get there, making impulse buys far more likely; similarly they usually put milk, bread etc. at the back of grocery stores.
You can also get condoms at the front of a drugstore. Giggity Giggity
What drugstore is that? All the ones I've seen are in the aisles closer to the pharmacy.
They have condoms at the front usually, at CVS. haha
Oh, condoms are in the back at the CVS by my house.
By the pharmacy...
Please, the sick people are really the able-bodied ones, I mean, the smokers are already wheezing before they come through the door.
Um... BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE THE DRIVE THRUs USUALLY ARE?
So the ill don't have to walk at all... I can't believe no one has said this.
U wanna put the drive thru in the front
That looks exactly like the Walgreens near my house.
those healthy and able bodied people smoking won't be so healthy for long if they keep on smoking..
You indirectly called smokers "healthy, able-bodied people". That's not entirely true
'Cause it's fo' me, WEEZY F BABY! AHA
that's commercial advertising for ya.
people who smoke is stupid
5 words and 3 grammatical errors, that's pretty impressive.
shut up guy your to dumb for me to talk to
That's it, keep digging yourself deeper.
If you're too fat and lazy to walk to the back of the store, then you should be looked way further down upon than any smoker.
That being said, where I live, you can't sell smokes anywhere that has a pharmacy anymore.
They said sick people, not fat lazy people.
Smoking may be bad for you, but it takes a lot longer to have effects on you than say, eating nothing but fast food. Having a diet with a high amount of fast food in it will kill you way faster than smoking will, and being obese your whole life is just as bad as smoking.
Actually, smoking will have pretty quick effects on you. I smoked one cigarette one day, and the next morning my throat hurt.
That could have been caused by other things, and if it wasnt that was probably just because you were new to it and it irritated your throat, you could get the same thing from sitting around a campfire
Yeah, you could. Because smoke is bad for you. It doesn't take long to develop "smokers cough."
Actually, I've been smoking for 2 years, plus a year on and off before that, and I still don't have a smokers cough
You might not notice it, but even if you don't have the cough that doesn't mean you're not hurting yourself just because you've got no outward signs.
I know I'm hurting myself, that's quote obviouse. But what I was saying was eating nothing but fast food works a lot faster
I think it depends. If you smoke once every other day it's not as bad as someone who has fast food every meal. But if you smoke a pack a day that's worse than someone who has fast food maybe once every few months. Both will kill you eventually anyway...
Having fast food once a month won't kill you. Have you ever watched super size me?
Yeah, I meant in large quantities. Smoking once a month won't kill you either. And Super Size Me was so gross... But it made a very valid point that I think people ignore when it comes to food.
I still think if you smoked a pack a day for a month, as a long time smoker, it would have a slower effect on you as apposed to eating fast food three times a day
I think it could equal out depending on amount. I'm not really sure which is worse. I've seen more than enough people with cancer from smoking and diabetes from a piss poor diet.
Not just diabetes, there are a whole mess of other things that get fucked up from a bad diet. It fucks with your liver as bad as alcohol does just to name one
And smoking causes more than just lung cancer. I was just giving examples.
you didn't make this up
What a lame POTD
It's a reward for staying healthy.
Completely unoriginal. If this is POTD, I'm losing faith in humanity.
Pointless POTD is pointless
Stupid comments are stupid
Because your POTD was sooooo much better. Just ignore it. And I am aware you are a troll. But no reason to waste your time on a stupid troll like that.
My POTD ruled.
Successful troll was successful. But I didn't find it a high quality troll.
That's America for ya... -_-
I don't get it
I think they meant that in other countries around the world, drug stores are pharmacies only, and don't sell shit that's terrible for you like cigarettes and junk food.
No, this is Patrick.
NO! THIS is Patrick! Identity theft! Identity theft!
No, this is the only level.
Why would they even have cigarettes in drugstores? :O
Drug - a substance that changes the way you think and/or feel. Tobacco is a stimulant, which accelerates the heart rate, therefore changing the way you feel. So, cigarettes are a DRUG and are sold in a DRUG store.
And this is why nobody talks to me in school.
(Your+name+(optional)): I know that they're drugs, it's just that where I live, drugstores only sell things that are GOOD for your health. Isn't that the whole point of a drugstore? A drugstore selling cigarettes is just so wrong ...
So explain again then why perfectly legal prescription drugs are among the most abused drugs today? I don't think your drug store only sells things that are "GOOD" for you.
Everything CAN be bad for your health. Then drugstores wouldn't sell anything. Even too much water can kill you.
I know that everything CAN be bad for your health, but drugstores shouldn't sell things that ARE bad for your health, only things that are MOSTLY GOOD for your health.
Like cough syrup and pills?
Anything that is a medicine.
no, cough syrup and pills are bad for you.
Yeah, have you never heard of purple drank?
I said anything that is a medicine. If there are unhealthy cough syrup and pills they shouldn't be in a drugstore.
.. They use regular cough syrup and pills for those types of things I believe. And all drugs are hazardous, that's what side effects are, and people overdose on purpose and by accidet all of the time. If you can't sell drugs that are bad for you there would be no drug stores at all.
Because they're drugs?
Let me rephrase that: "Why would they even sell unhealthy drugs in a drugstore that's supposed to sell medicine? :O"
because it's a source of revenue? think about it, your business model can't go wrong when your customers are ADDICTED to something.
you're right, they should open up a different type of drugstore for the non-medicine drugs, like cigarettes and cocaine.
They already do, it's called my house
Cigarettes aren't that bad for you.
Yeah, and cancer isn't that bad either.
Serious? I smoke and I disagree with you
(<3): I know right? They're only the leading cause of death in the world, but thats not even a big deal because people are going to die eventually anyways, and they're extremely addictive, but so what? How else are they going to sell the product? And the makers of the product even say theyre bad for you, but why listen to them? They obviously don't know what theyre talking about since they're selling the product in the first place. Sheesh, why DO people think they're so bad? Also, if you're trolling, I feel like aa retard now.
I'd like more sarcasm please, with a dash of sardonic.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the world.
(Credetemi):Death is the act of dying. In essence, they are the same thing.
I know... I didn't find it funny... face palm
Haha! Says the person who just complained. :-)
and that comes from...
Also, Obesity, Genetics, old age, coronary heart disease, atherosclerosis... Shall I go on?
sure, why not?
Well, I could, but I would probably just end up making up stuff out of indignation.
Actually, the leading cause of death is high cholesterol, aka being obese. I think that is just North America though, doubt it's the whole world
Yeah. pft, the rest of the world is just too cool for obesity, but somehow most of the deaths are from it.
It's only the leading cause of death because a lot of people are taking it. They aren't that harmful, but when billions of people are taking it, it leads to a lot of death.
I want you to reread what you wrote, and then I want you to go take a walk and think about.
If a more people drank, then smoking wouldn't be the leading cause of death, right?
BUT IT IS.
