That's one that's often confused me, because in Australia,* every* chemist
/ pharmacy (some are called one, some the other, & a few drug stores are
now also starting to appear) dispenses prescription medicine (or at least
I've never heard of one that doesn't?).

I guess it's different in other parts of the world?
