Howard County Bans Sale Of Sugary Drinks On Public Property

HOWARD COUNTY, Md. (WJZ)—No more sugary drinks in Howard County vending machines.
As Mike Schuh reports, the county executive stopped the drinks from being sold on county property.
Sugar, she says, turns into fat.
The student government at Burleigh Middle was brought out to demonstrate the problem.
At their call, 10 tons of fine sand was dumped to demonstrate the amount of sugar which would be consumed by their school in a year if every kid drank one sugar soda a day.
...Howard County Executive Ken Ulman used this backdrop to announce a ban on the sale of sugar drinks on county property. “Vending machines will look differently in our parks, libraries and any county buildings,” Ulman said.
The ban, he says, takes effect immediately.
Of course it does.
As Mark Levin is fond of saying, the circle of liberty surrounding each of us seems to grow smaller by the day.
Now that Chief Justice John Roberts has ruled that the government has the power to compel individuals to buy products of the central government's design, how much longer until the feds mandate the consumption of broccoli?
