E-cigarettes in pharmacies

I attended this year’s Pharmacy Show at the NEC in Birmingham on 5–6 October 2014 and saw a large number of exhibitors flogging their e-cigarette products to attendees, many of whom are pharmacists. How can pharmacists encourage patients to give up smoking while at the same time promote the sale of e-cigarettes? My local Boots pharmacy has a display stand of e-cigarettes right next to the dispensary and this concerns me.

  • As you can imagine, I'm with you on this Monty! Maybe we should be boycotting pharmacies that sell these things.
