The classic combination of coffee and cigarettes has been ingrained in pop culture, but Starbucks isn't interested in perpetuating the zeitgeist. As of June 1, the company is banning smoking within 25 feet of its stores, according to news reports.
The ban affects the majority of company-owned Starbucks stores in the U.S. and Canada, according to NBC Los Angeles. A company representative confirmed to The Huffington Post that about 7,000 stores will be affected -- both those that have outdoor seating and those that do not. The rule won't apply to Starbucks that are housed in other stores, such as Target.
James Shively, wants his Washington-based company that he created to become the Starbucks or Coca Cola of the cannabis industry. He even has plans to import marijuana from south of the border–currently illegal according to international law—and he’s apparently got the president of Mexico on board.
Jamen Shively, is probably not the kind of person you’d picture selling pot. He used to be a manager at Microsoft, and wears a suit and tie, a short preppy haircut, and nerdy glasses.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is on the cover of TIME magazine's June 10, 2013, issue, set to hit newsstands on Friday.
Playing off Chicago's basketball team, Emanuel is labeled a "Chicago Bull," and the cover reads, "Mayor Rahm Emanuel is fighting both crime and failing schools. So why are people mad at him?"
Writer David Von Drehle dives into the city's politics, violence, failing schools and financial crisis- and asks Emanuel why the former White House chief of staff left President Barack Obama's administration to run a city so plagued with problems. The photo by Mark Seliger shows Emanuel on a CTA elevated train platform, with a Brown Line train to Kimball behind him.
The magazine hits newsstands as violence continues to plague Chicago, and just a week after the Chicago Board of Education voted to close 50 Chicago Public Schools and programs, prompting lawsuits and outrage from the Chicago Teachers Union, which has threatened to work to oust him in the next election.
