From the Chicago Sun-Times news (not comics) pages. The Board of Alderman seek ban on tiny plastic baggies:

Lt. Kevin Navarro, commanding officer of the Chicago Police Department's Narcotics and Gang Unit, said the ordinance will be an "important tool" to go after grocery stores, health food stores and other businesses. The bags are used by the thousand to sell small quantities of drugs at $10 or $20 a bag.

Not sure why the cops are going after grocery and health food stores, instead of drug dealers. But that's just me.

DRUG DEALER: What? Can't get no baggies? Damn, guess we'll have to go outa bizness."
