There’s no way America will ever make the use of tobacco products illegal; they mean too much money in government coffers, so to speak. Limiting access to cigarettes, snuff and chewing tobacco so minors can’t buy or shoplift the stuff is fine by me. Publishing companies and other industries didn’t ban smoking inside their facilities because of local ordinances; they did it for savings in insurance costs and a decrease in the number of smoke-fouled computers and smoke-sickened workers. Business owners with any acumen at all have instituted bans with or without the law telling them that they must do so. It’s the economical and prudent thing to
We are arguing that everyone should not experience Rainbow Soda even just once. Even the smallest amount of rainbowsoda can lead to addtion and negative effects on one's health and distort oneself To prove that rainbow soda leads to addiction, We can look at Baker Hans when he thought" Alittle taste could hardly do any harm"(2410). Hans was also under the impression that a small taste would not but harmful however, after he drank he he thought i decided i would never part with this bottle and i would refill it as it was empty"(241) This shows that even the most dimunitive amount or rainbow soda in any amount can definitely lead to addiction. When drinking rainbow soda people are distorted and not in the right mind state as exihibited in the Cards and in Baker Hans. They do not view life as one should.
In 2003, California became the first state to ban the sale of soda in middle and elementary schools. Los Angeles school district lost $4.5 million alone in 2004 (Dalton). In 2006 snack and soda makers pledged to limit the kinds of beverages and sugar ingredients sold in vending machines. However, the article “Junk Foods in School” gives insight on how some view to disagree on the ban of selling junk food to students. In a Seattle, Washington school district, schools went against this ban because the district, which had previously received $340,000 a year from Coca-Cola, no longer was receiving funds that supported yearbooks and school activities.
“From then on it was like a twenty here, a forty there. After a couple months I moved up to twenties and forties every day.” The twenties and forties that Woody refers to are the milligrams of oxycodone contained within the prescription pills she would buy. Many heroin addicts start their road to addiction with pills. “When I was a year deep, trying to sustain an OxyContin addiction was not feasible, that’s how I started on ‘H’,” says Woody. The deaths from overdose in New Mexico hit close to home for Woody.
We could ask our city officials to bring back water fountains. We could work to ban the use of bottled water in schools or entire city. This video has opened my eyes. I always knew that bottled water could be dangerous to the environment, but if you recycled them that it wouldn’t be as bad. Now that I know that recycling really doesn’t do that much.
Assault Weapons Ban I am against the idea of banning assault weapons. I wouldn’t have voted for it. I read the San Francisco Chronicles articles on this matter. In the article Senate Charles Grassley (R of Iowa) made a good point. He mentioned how Feinstein’s previous ban did not prevent, control or stop the Columbine School massacre.
I decided to write on this topic after trying different diet pills, teas and fads throughout my life time. The last one I tried was the Sensa Sprinkle Diet (90 day diet) Last year and I did not losing any weight. To my dismay I gained over 60 pounds. I was very upset to find out that they had been found guilty of deceptive and misleading advertising by the Federal Trade Commission on January 7, 2014. And this is what was said: “The Federal Trade Commission on Tuesday cracked down on Sensa Products, an El Segundo company that sells a weight-loss powder that users sprinkle on food to help curb their appetite.
Jordan Mendoza Money Management Brent Booth November 27th 2012 I feel as that there is no way to possibly make Tax's fair for everyone. Its also hard to make a decision on this topic because my views are one sided with washington state tax's. I feel as if that we were to take taxes away on something that it would effect something else, as to say no tax on gas means there is no money going toward the roads. If we were to have sin tax, which I believe we already do tax those items, I think that is ok. Taxing items like alcohol and tobacco, is a good thing, you hope it will help people quit smoking, or alcoholics stop drinking. But then is that fair to he companies selling the product?
The drinking age should be lowered because of many studies showing that to be 21 to drink legally is not helping anything. One main study to support my opinion is the irresponsible manner we drink as underage drinkers and the percentages from now to then when you could be 18 and drink legally. My second issue is how easy it is to get alcohol and you can bust as many people as you can but your never going to stop underage drinking. My other point I like to point out is the history of laws being passed and what has changed now from then in the drinking laws. In this report I?m going to express how drinking is not to be seen as poison or a really bad thing to do if we just handle the way we drink in a more responsible manner.
Prohibition seemed to work at first because arrest rates dropped and the average American could not afford the price for illegal alcohol. Alcohol consumption dropped 30% during prohibition. Which Prohibition 4 theses results would change over time. By the 1820’s the average American was drinking 7 gallons of pure alcohol. This is the equivalent of: 70 gallons of beer, or 39 gallons of wine, or 15.5 gallons of distilled liquor.
