Comments:This is another "good idea" with widespread, and I would hope, unintended consequences. As a pharmacist, I deal with the ever evolving specter and costs of HIPPA privacy laws (which initially seemed like a good idea). Now I will have to ask someone wanting a discount of their purchases to wait 7 days--certainly this is not the issue at hand. If the government feels the need to protect those unable to assess their actions, at least limit the rule to a large dollar investment. Please, consider the unintended ripple effect!
