The Progressive Wonderland of San Francisco Bans Everything

The Progressive Wonderland of San Francisco Bans Everything, by Daniel Greenfield.

Here are a few things that are effectively legal in San Francisco: drugs, public defecation and shoplifting.

And here are some of the things that are banned or will be banned in the City by the Bay: Straws. Fur coats. Bottled water. Eating at work. Vaping liquids. Upholstered furniture. Plastic bags. Pet stores. Electric scooters. Coffee cups and packing peanuts. Tropical fish. The McDonald’s Happy Meal. …

San Francisco decriminalized public defecation, but criminalized plastic straws. While bench warrants for public urination are discarded, the straw fines are real and expensive. A California statewide bill goes further with a threat of six months in the county jail for giving a man a straw. When drugs are legal and straws aren’t, the Mexican cartels will soon switch to smuggling drinking straws into California.
