That a tax on sweetened drinks will somehow correct obesity in Telluride's youth is absurd. The World Health Organization posted a study in 2007. There was no mention of sweetened drinks. Lack of exercise was described as one of the major contributors to obesity. Kids in Telluride are lacking in exercise? Ridiculous! Telluride overwhelmingly supported legalizing marijuana, which is a major problem with our youth, but condemns drinking a Coke? Idiotic proponents of this tax should go back to New York. Mayor Bloomberg will welcome you.
