Pharmacies say cuts would hurt access

Los Angeles residents have been visiting First Street Pharmacy to have their prescriptions filled since the early 1970’s. The spot has garnered a multi-generational following of locals who knew the shop’s owner, Dr. Robert Ramirez, when he was just a kid. They come to Ramirez because he knows their families and their symptoms and because he’ll let them delay payment when he knows they’re low on funds.
