Philadelphia is now the first U.S. city to ban cashless stores, or stores that only accept cards or other electronic payments.

Supporters of the ban say such stores discriminate against poor and minority communities, while some business owners claim going cashless prevents them from getting robbed.

The New York Times says the policy goes into effect July 1, and businesses that violate the law could be fined up to $2000.
