Wait, how about passing a law stating how much people are legally allowed to eat? That should end obesity....
Personally, I do understand their reasoning behind passing such a ban but it's still pretty stupid in the sense that it won't affect the obesity rate AT ALL. Besides, a lot if not most obese people choose to be overweight/obese with their lifestyle choices, not just their soft drink choices(not counting those with legit medical problems). Might aswell implement a new law stating that people deemed to skinny by some are not allowed to do shopping without reaching a minimum amount of calories per meal.
Next up, you may eat fast food only once a week. No red meat with trimmings attached. Why is smoking still allowed to the tune of multiple packs a day by chain smokers?
Think about that. A 21 year old can buy all the alcohol he wants at once in a liquor store, go home and drink himself into a coma, but can't get a large soda at a gas station in NY. Fucking crazy.
