San Francisco becomes first US city to ban e-cigarettes

San Francisco has become the first major city in the US to ban the sale of e-cigarettes. The San Francisco Board of Supervisors approved the ordinance on Tuesday, banning the sale and distribution of e-cigarettes until they have approval from the US FDA.

I think San Francisco has far bigger issues with public health than e-cigs, last I heard there was an app for avoiding human feaces on the streets.

If you can’t tax the crap out of it, get rid of it. This is Not about public health what so ever.

What they ban vs what they allow in California is just plain weird. But hey, at least they came in last in the most recent quality of life rankings.

...And yet your still allowed to shit in the street with nothing but what a little ticket? How da fuck does that make any sense?!

How about enforceing your "no shitting in the street" laws first? I would think human feces and used needles would be a bigger health concern.

It's because e-cigs aren't detrimental to society enough. Makes perfect sense to me.

Um... but you fuckers pass out syringes to druggies on the streets. That's why your streets are littered with needles. What the fuck. You people make no sense.
