SF pot shops vs Starbucks

Did You Know? There Are More "Medical" Pot Shops in San Francisco Than There Are Starbucks
As we've noted previously, state "medical" marijuana laws breed confusion, abuse, and violence in neighborhoods and communities.

Here's our latest analysis of this phenomenon. In downtown San Francisco alone, there are 98 marijuana dispensaries, compared to 71 Starbucks Coffee shops:

In fact, the number of dispensaries in SF is limited by city
ordinance and has never exceeded ~40. Our listing of active clubs at
http://canorml.org/prop/cbclist.html#sf currently shows 22 clubs and
5 delivery services. One other unlisted club is licensed by the
city. By contrast, the ABC reports that there are 3,500 licensed
alcohol outlets in SF.
