1) If the state is doing it, all you I hate the Fed Gov and give all the power to the state should be thrilled. But... I guess when the state who you empowered does anything you don't like well too bad.
This issue has nothing to do with state vs. federal authority. The government - at any level - has no right to dictate the dietary choices of private citizens, thought I'm certain they'll make bolder strides toward asserting such authority now that Obamacare is a foregone conclusion.
These rules, as stated above are for kids
They aren't the government's kids and, though I don't drink energy drinks, I respect the right of others to do so.
