O.K. this is getting out of hand. In San Fran you can smoke Marijuana, but if you get the munchies, forget about it. There will be no sugar in vending machines… that’s right, no Coke no Chocolate. Pot heads should protest in mass over this one… but that would mean going outside and holding something other than a Bong.
Under an executive order from Mayor Gavin Newsom, Coke, Pepsi and Fanta Orange are no longer allowed in vending machines on city property, although their diet counterparts are – up to a point.
Newsom’s directive, issued in April but whose practical impacts are starting to be felt now, bars calorically sweetened beverages from vending machines on city property.
That includes non-diet sodas, sports drinks and artificially sweetened water. Juice must be 100 percent fruit or vegetable juice with no added sweeteners. Diet sodas can be no more than 25 percent of the items offered, the directive says.
