Russian anti-gay laws impact Olympics, vodka sales

Many gay bars across North America have joined a campaign to stop selling Russian vodka due to anti-gay laws in Russia. The chief cause of the anger is a law signed by President Vladimir Putin last month that bans the "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations" and imposes hefty fines for providing information about the gay community to minors or holding gay pride rallies.
