Starbucks Vs. Pot Clubs

Mayor Gavin Newsom is apparently alarmed about the fast-growing number of medical marijuana clinics in San Francisco. The are at least 37 of these pot clubs, and he wants to put a lid on the opening of new ones for a while.

This got me thinking, wow, 37 seems like a lot — I wonder if there are now more pot clubs in SF than Starbucks? So I went to the Starbucks Web site to find out, and sadly, no, there are still WAY more Starbucks (71, in fact). Oh well, at least it's less than a 2-1 ratio.
