SF lawmakers may ban sale of tobacco in grocery stores 

Grocery stores with pharmacies could soon be prohibited from selling tobacco products.

Supervisor Eric Mar’s legislation that builds on a tobacco-sale restriction comes before the Board of Supervisors Land Use and Economic Development Committee on Monday.

Two years ago, San Francisco became the first city in the nation to ban the sale of tobacco products in drugstores like Walgreens. Mar’s proposed legislation would expand the ban to include grocery stores with on-site pharmacies.

The Board of Supervisors Land Use and Economic Development Committee meets Monday at 1 p.m., at City Hall, in Room 263. The full board would have to approve the legislation for it to go into effect.
