S.F. Limits on Tobacco Sales Withstand Court Challenge
On Wednesday, a panel of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that San Francisco could enforce its ban on tobacco sales at drugstores, ruling that the ordinance does not infringe on tobacco companies' freedom of expression.Â San Francisco is the first city in the country to enact such a ban.
