State Pharmacies Distributed Party Political Material
Sweden’s state pharmacies have been criticized for distributing leaflets about the Social Democratic government’s proposed budget.
A leading opposition politician says a public monopoly should not be a propaganda office for the governing party. After the protest, the pharmacies withdrew the leaflets from their stores.
There are 900 state pharmacies in this country of 9 million, the only places where prescription drugs or even aspirin can be sold. The opposition has previously called for a break-up of the monopoly.
