Look at this!
i can understand any legistlation that is in place to inform you of the risks involved. or of any other healthy alternatives.
However to punish, that makes no sense, unless you are in goverment and looking for ways to pay for certain goverment programs.
the only tax that I can understand, is that we should tax unhealthy foods, the money should go straight to medicaid or medicare, so like that it is not a penalty, rather a deposit for when the eater will have to pay the medical bills.
