Little ol' San Francisco made ink in USA Today as part of Mayor Gavin Newsom's clever plan to rule to the state of California.

What pressing issue is he tackling this time? Tobacco in drug stores. Specifically, he wants to ban harmful cigs from places like our beloved Walgreens. Newsom, it seems, "proposed an unprecedented city ban on drugstores selling tobacco products, including cigars, pipes and smokeless tobacco."

"This will be the beginning of a national movement," Newsom Evitas to USA Today.

The article goes on to say that drug stores are places for getting healthy--even though drug stores are one of the top retailers of the mylar food group--and we pretty much agree. Or we just don't care. Smokers will always be able to find their sweet release elsewhere, right?

What say you?
