Tobacco Sales Ban in the Golden Gate City

ACCE Webmaster on Wednesday, September 10, 2008 at 9:06:35 pm

Walgreens is suing the city of San Francisco over a law that bans tobacco sales in pharmacies.  The law, which was passed in late July and is set to go into effect October 1, is being challenged because it singles out drug stores.  The tobacco sales ban doesn't apply to grocery stores or big-box retailers that also have pharmacies.

If San Francisco is the nation's coal mine canary, and issues from mandatory paid sick leave to plastic bag bans suggest that it is, then other cities may soon attempt to impose regulations on where tobacco products can be sold.

For background information about this ordinance, check out this article from the San Francisco Chronicle.
