You have to know the chemistry and pharmacology of every drug out there. As a result, you have to go to school for a long time and there is a huge shortage. Supply and demand.

WalMart is reported to recently be offering around $70K for entry-level pharmacists.  That's WalMart, ladies and gentlemen, the big box retailer famous for paying nearly nothing to its employees.  If WalMart starts at $70K, you can imagine that pharmacist salaries elsewhere are significantly higher.

Maybe they get an employee discount as well.

A lot of the pharmacies and hospitals are offering around $50/hour. $50/hr*40/hrs/week*52weeks=$104K/year + signing bonus etc.
 
Of course the image some people think of does not justify this salary, however, you really have to know alot to get into the field.  
 
You can see an example of the curriculum at the website below.
