Now you can get a Plan B pill when you buy a bag of chips from a vending machine. Well, at least in one Brooklyn laundromat you can.
Among the vast array of laundry machines, the Sunshine Laundromat in Greenpoint has an arcade, a bar and a vending machine stocked with Plan B, lube and an assortment of pregnancy tests. Some say it holds the two most important things in a modern woman’s life: candy and contraceptives.
According to DNAinfo, the pregnancy tests and lubricant cost around $10 each and the Plan B pill costs $35. Sunshine Laundromat owner Peter Rose told DNAinfo that his idea for the family planning vending machine came when he was in CVS.
“I was just bored one day perusing the aisles of CVS,” Rose told DNAinfo. “I saw the PlanB and thought, ‘That doesn’t belong in a vending machine,’ and so I bought some.”
Rose isn’t trying to make a political statement he says, he is just offering ‘random items for fun’.
What are your thoughts on this matter? Is this an idea that should catch on or die out quickly?
