Types of pharmacyEdit

Pharmacies were further divided into first-line pharmacies, which provided medication, and sometimes other supplies, for household use, and hospital pharmacies, which provided medication for hospital use. Often hospital pharmacies supplied more specialized medication than first-line pharmacies. (Star Trek: The Stoneship Files: "Educational Armageddon")
