Black Employment in Drug Stores Outlawed

Gov. William Schley signed an act prohibiting the employment of any slave or free black in any apothecary shop or drug store involved in the mixing and dispensing of any drug or medicine. The penalty was a $100 fine for the first conviction and $500 for any subsequent convictions, with half of the fine to go to the informer.
