Prof forces students to lobby government to ban soda
Daily caller – Robby Soave – 3/8/2013
- MANDATED ACTIVITY THAT STUDENTS MAY NOT AGREE WITH
“Some 200 undergrads will be asked to contact legislators in their home cities, counties, or states asking them to adopt legislation similar to that already adopted in New York City … banning restaurants, delis, movie theaters and many other businesses from selling high-sugar drinks in cups or containers larger than 16 ounces,” said the press release.
Walter Olson, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute, pointed out that the list fails to accommodate students who may disagree with Banzhaf’s agenda.
“All the other examples given, however, involve alternative ways of extending regulation and taxation in the food and beverage realm,” he wrote. “Presumably any student that believes that the government should stay out of this area has had the foresight to drop the course.”
