On Tuesday CCN brought you the story of one city loosening restrictions on smoking, but we didn't have to wait long for that pendulum to swing back. The San Francisco Board of Supes voted this week to ban cigarette sales in all pharmacies. We could make a joke about getting your Viagra and smokes in one stop, but it's a family friendly blog we're running here.
According to the SF Chron: "The law will ban the sale of all tobacco products at pharmacies in the city, including Walgreens and Rite Aid stores. Big-box stores like Costco and supermarkets like Safeway will still be allowed to sell tobacco." The report also states that few other Bay Area cities are ready to follow suit... but the real questions will be: is anyone going to file suit?
