Following court ruling r«pr« drop, »,„ WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court decision allowing pharmacists to advertise the prices of their prescription drugs may mean that customers will pay less for medication, according to a consumer group involved in the case.

The court rejected arguments by Virginia officials, whose state law against advertisement of prescription drugs was challenged. State officials argued that the advertising ban was needed to prevent cost cutting that would result in poor service. "There is no claim that the advertising nan in any way prevents the cutting of corners by the pharmacist who is so inclined," Justice Harry A. Blackmun said for the court. "That pharmacist is likely to cut corners in any event. "Virginia is free to require whatever professional standards it wishes of its pharmacists. But it may not do so by keeping the public in ignorance of the entirely lawful terms that competing pharmacists are offering," Blackmun said.

A Washington-based resarch group, American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research, issued a report in March estimating buyers could save »380 million annually if drugs could be advertised.

For instance, in Chics go, the drug Darvon could be purchased for prices ranging from H.90 to f3.90, The AP study showed. MARKETS SOUTH ST. PAUL, Minn.
