Homeopathic remedies in pharmacies

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:20 pm on 26 March 2018

Rescue remedy, arnica cream, sleep aids - homeopathy products like these are often sold at our local pharmacies. 

But as of March 12 this year, a new code of ethics came into effect for pharmacists stating they must advise customers that there is no scientific proof of the effectiveness of these remedies. 

So are pharmacists following this new code? Chair of The Society for Science Based Heathcare, Mark Hanna, discusses the issue.
