More Laws Please! Food Carts Cause Childhood Obesity

Karen DeCoster nails another Nanny Statist to the wall:

Since all schools and their surrounding neighborhood have long been “drug-free” zones, it is time to turn them into lunch-free zones as well. California state bureaucrats have already declared legal pot dispensaries to be a threat to the kiddies when they are too close to a federal child internment camp, and now, lunch trucks and food carts are deemed to be even more sinister.

A California state lawmaker believes food trucks are contributing to childhood obesity, and wants to keep them farther than marijuana dispensaries from schools.

Assemblyman William Monning (D-Carmel) chairs the Assembly Health Committee. Monning wants to ban all food trucks and pushcarts from within 1,500 feet of elementary, middle and high schools from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on school days. Pot stores must be located at least 600 feet from schools.

The trucks are said to be “contributing to an epidemic of childhood obesity on California school campuses by supplying youngsters with greasy burgers, sodas and other high-calorie food.” This is unlike the federal subsidized school lunch program, of course. After all, the government serves up “intelligent pizza” and sends in Lunch Nazis to take away the home-packed lunches of children so they can be replaced with Federal McNuggets.

Enough said.
