Will Cambridge, Mass Become a Soda Free Zone?

By on 6.19.12 | 10:17PM

Three decades ago, Cambridge, Massachusetts aspired to be a nuclear free zone. Apparently, the mayor of The People's Republic of Cambridge wants the city to yet again be the subject of ridicule. At last night's city council meeting, Cambridge Mayor Henrietta Davis proposed the city consider a ban on the sale of large sized sodas at restaurants and other venues along the lines of what is being planned in New York City by Nanny Bloomberg. The proposal has been referred to the city's public health department for study.

If the People's Republic of Cambridge does restrict the sale of soda in any way, shape or form, all it will do is drive people to get their soda from Boston, Somerville, Arlington, Watertown as well as in Mitt Romney's stomping grounds in Belmont.

In the grand scheme of things, this is no more likely to be implemented than "Meatless Mondays" were a couple of years ago.
