May 17, 2012

It appears that bake sales are the latest victim of overregulation. Schools across the country are banning the sale of nonnutritious foods as part of the fight against childhood obesity.

Massachusetts goes a step further, banning children from handing out sugary treats to classmates on their birthdays.
