Okay, here's one problem with the legislation:

Please explain to my why you believe that diet soda is healthier for you than regular soda.

Most nutrition experts don't think you should drink any soda at all, but if you're going to drink one, many experts would recommend a regular, sugar-sweetened soda over diet. See, e.g., http://www.medicaldaily.com/diet-soda-vs-regular-soda-one-worse-you-other-308063

Diet soda may lead to increased risk of heart attacks and strokes - see http://www.miami.edu/index.php/news/releases/study_finds_possible_link_between_diet_soda_and_vascular_risks/

If you're going to "encourage" me to consume healthier drinks and snacks, you might want to spend some time figuring out which drinks are actually "healthier".

One of my objections to the previous restrictions related to this silliness. See e.g. http://www.betterbeveragefinder.org/drinks?drink_types%5B%5D=&sweetener_type%5B%5D=&search_name=diet+mountain+dew+code+red Diet Mountain Dew Code Red, with all that artificial color, artificial sweetener and other trash was rated a "Good choice" the second best category. You. Have. Got. To. Be. Kidding. Me.
