California Lawmaker Wants To Protect Kids From Evil…..Food Trucks

Said lawmaker must have been indoctrinated a few too many times while listening to Michelle Obama

(KTLA) A California state lawmaker believes food trucks are contributing to childhood obesity, and wants to keep them farther than marijuana dispensaries from schools.

Assemblyman William Monning (D-Carmel) chairs the Assembly Health Committee. Monning wants to ban all food trucks and pushcarts from within 1,500 feet of elementary, middle and high schools from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on school days. Pot stores must be located at least 600 feet from schools.

Monning says that, although there are some trucks specializing in healthy gourmet food, those trucks make up a small percentage of the vendors. The other trucks are contributing to an epidemic of childhood obesity on California school campuses by supplying youngsters with greasy burgers, sodas and other high-calorie food, according to Monning.
