Keep us posted. The injunction that halted the Pharmacy Board's rules was a crass insertion of religion into public policy, and its going to be really tough to get the 9th circuit to overturn it.

@4 The pharmacy that filed for an exception from the Pharmacy Board rules, resulting in the injunction, is based in Olympia. It's part of Stormans, Inc. who run a couple of Thriftways.
