“Sugary Drinks” Shaneece Worgs

Sugary Drinks

A law of 16-ounces on sugary drinks will be banned in fast food IMG_0030_2places in six months, which is in March 2013 if any store is found in violation they will pay a $200 fine.  In the Los Angles Times New York was the first place for the law to be passed.  This law is to help people who are struggling with obesity.  They also have this law now where when children in public schools have their lunch they have to have to full up their tray.  The Supreme Court should review the law because Mayor Bloomberg shouldn’t have to help children or adults with obesity.  Not everyone wants to loose weight.

The purpose of this law is to help people wit obesity.  I disagree with the law because Mayor Bloomberg shouldn’t try to only have to drink 16 – oz drinks because other people don’t want to lose weight.  In New York public school children now have to fill their tray food.  There is food being wasted because children for example teens don’t want to eat healthy foods.

The 1st amendment “protects the right to freedom of religion and freedom of expression for government interference”.  This allows the people of the United States to have the freedom to say what they like, have the religion they want and have their freedom to do want they want. This violates the amendment because the government controlling want other people consume.  Some people express them selves in different ways for example drinking sugary drinks over 16- ozs.

The government shouldn’t have anything to do with what people eat or drink.  If fast food chains violate this law they will have to pay a $200 fine.  Other people shouldn’t have to suffer form others who don’t want to be healthy.
