I think a lot of pharmacists are bitter because they have to deal with insurance all day, and work incredibly long hours.
In the state I live in, we had to pass a law in order for pharmacists to get an hour lunch break.
When I was in school, I used to work in a pharmacy and I have never seen people work so hard.
They can, however, refuse to dispense any prescription at any time and I have seen it happen a lot.
Again, the laws differ from state to state in the US, but where I live, the physician can prescribe whatever they want - even if two medications interact. If the pharmacist dispenses the medication, they are culpable for any harm done and not the doc.
