San Francisco may not be so crazy after all.
The City made national headlines for making it more difficult to smoke by taxing cigarette butt clean ups to tougher smoking laws.
The San Francisco Examiner reports that cigarette sales are down statewide. In fact they are way down.
The study released by the California Board of Equalization shows californians bought 8.1 percent fewer cigarettes in 2009 than 2008. It is the largest decline in the state since 1999.
San Francisco must be doing something right by being the first city to take the smoking stands that it is.
