Well on my recent visit to San Francisco, I remember I was getting out of a club

and people were offering me marijuana and other drugs, and police were there
and they just turned a blind eye, I was scared that they would try to warn me
not to be with these persons, or even search and arrest them, but they didn't
even tho they know they had drugs with them, but they didn't even warn the
"dealers" or anything, they were just staying there.

I heard that in San Francisco, some people still protests naked, and that before

people was seen naked regularly on parks and some other places, that you can
still see some people, some times but it's getting rare now, any SF local that
confirm this?
