Voice of the Restaurant Industry
This just in from BevNET.com. So what are the implications of this for our industry? If non-alcoholic drinks can be banned for the safety of our children, what's next? The Big Mac? Coffee?
From BevNET.com: "Kentucky youths may have to turn to another source for their morning caffeine jolt if the state's legislature passes a bill introduced Friday that would ban energy drink sales to minors. Beverage and convenience store industry professionals say the proposed bill unfairly targets energy drinks and would create an undue burden on convenience stores. But State Rep. Danny Ford (R-Mt. Vernon) said he introduced the bill "for the safety of the children."
To me, this seems like a very dangerous slippery slope that government shouldn't go near.
