JULIE SALTMAN has a piece on the issue of pharmacists refusing to fill prescriptions, and hers comes with a very cool graphic: a map of the United States showing the breakdown of state laws on "pharmacists' rights" (so-called):

  • States that currently have laws allowing pharmacists to refuse prescriptions are outlined in red.
  • States that have no such laws are white with no outline.
  • States that are actively considering laws that require pharmacists to fill all prescriptions are outlined in black.

Three states are outlined in black: California, Missouri, and ... NEW JERSEY!

I knew there was a reason I love this state, and it's not just Bruce Springsteen.
