Boston officials are considering a ban on soda and other sugary beverage sales in all municipal buildings, reports the Globe. The ban is based on obvious reasons (soda is unhealthy and makes you fat), but nonetheless: isn’t it bad enough that people have to work in the ultra-depressing environs of City Hall? Shouldn’t they at least be able to buy a Coke in their own building for their troubles? Nonetheless, some sort of restriction is likely — when the city accepted $12.5 million to fight obesity, it promised to “decrease consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages through counter-advertising and policy change.”
