‘While the city burns’: San Francisco just took a big crap on people trying to quit smoking (but heroin users can rest easy)

San Francisco’s government has really got its priorities in order:

More from Bloomberg:

The city voted Tuesday to ban sales of e-cigarettes, making it illegal to sell nicotine vaporizer products in stores or for online retailers to ship the goods to San Francisco addresses. The ban will be the first of its kind to go into effect in the U.S.

The ordinance will now go to the mayor to sign into law. Cigarettes and other tobacco products will remain legal in the city, along with recreational marijuana.

“This is groundbreaking legislation that shows local governments are prepared to step up,” [City Attorney Dennis Herrera] said. “What you will see in the aftermath of this legislation is other jurisdictions looking at what they might be prepared to do to protect their young people.”

Amazing. San Francisco literally cannot get its sh*t together, but its government has time to tackle the scourge of people who are trying to quit smoking.
