San Francisco bans discrimination against fat people, although "sizeism" probably includes people of other sizes and shapes as well. I predict a really tangled lawsuit when a fat person accidentally sits on a midget.

Potentially dangerous drugs sold to vulnerable clients at inflated

Inflated...prices. Talk about adding insult to injury, huh?
