    Does your employer have a company policy forbidding firearms in the work place?

    i certainly dont know of any law that would provent you from carrying in a pharmacy.
    As far as the work issue goes, its more of a questions of whether or not your employer has a policy against it.

    Totally up to your employer, unless you work in a hospital.

    No issue if you work at a hospital. It has to be posted (30.06) to legally prevent you from carrying. He could however be fired if prohibited by his employer.

    If the handbook doesnt say you cant, I wouldnt even ask. they should provide all the rules you need to know in the handbook.

    fwiw, my company has a no weapons policy, but if ever the SHTF, Id rather have my gun and lose my job, than not have my gun and lose my life

    If you ask, the answer will always be NO. Then they will update the handbook, because no one thought of it before.

    NEVER ASK !!!

    Carry or don't carry. Just know that whether there's a policy or not, they can fire you anyway.

    If you're going to carry, don't discuss guns or carrying with anyone, let alone the idea of carrying at work. Your concealment won't work if your mouth doesn't stay shut.

    well i wouldn't ask in the first place, your right because they would say no and then make a rule... i just want to make sure that its legal, being that there are controlled drugs around.

    All us Texans know the definition of concealed! In the absence of clear direction, I have always believed that it's easier to get forgiveness than permission

    Legally I see no problems with you carrying. I have carried in Walgreens several times. :)

    I do not think being around controlled substances would be a factor unless you were taking said controlled substances. There is a provision for being drunk and carrying. I would assume that being under the influence of other things would apply there as well.

    But if you have seen nothing in the employee handbook/rules about firearms, you have not been forewarned. So should be good to go from a legal standpoint.

    Most pharmacies inside hospitals are in secure areas(auto locking door, thick glass window with a small hole to pass the drugs through). I wouldn't think you would need to carry in a hospital pharmacy given the above thingss
    area in place, but then again...if I could I prob would just for the hell of it...cause you know.
