beverage ban and control

Howard county council is proposing beverage ban and control。I know it is always controversial for such kind of measure. In my company,free soda is provided. Once I suggested we should pay for the soda for the benefit of our health, one co-work accused me “social engineering”。

When I sat in an National Science Foundation panel in May,free soda was provided and bottle water was prohibited because of some federal law. It is ridiculous this happened in a  federal government agency ,right?

There is always a debate between personal freedom,personal responsibility and government control.
