NYC’s tobacco-free pharmacy law substantially reduces tobacco retailer density yet impact is unequal across neighborhoods

(Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health) New York City's tobacco-free free pharmacy law substantially reduces tobacco retailer density overall, but the policy's impact is not evenly distributed across neighborhoods. On average, retailer density will decrease by nearly 7 percent, with several 'Neighborhood Tabulation Areas' experiencing reductions greater than 15 percent after the policy takes full effect in 2019.
