Howard County Executive Ken Ulman used this backdrop to announce a ban on the sale of sugar drinks on county property.
“Vending machines will look differently in our parks, libraries and any county buildings,” Ulman said.
The ban, he says, takes effect immediately.
“We have a responsibility to lead by example. This doesn’t impact what people sell in their stores, what people sell in their restaurants, but when folks come into county buildings, I think we owe it to ourselves to be an example,” Ulman said.
Also included in the ban, no sugary drinks can be served at any meeting hosted by the county.

What ever happened to personal responsibility? No one forces you to put anything in your mouth and swallow it, that decision is yours, and yours alone -- or it should be -- and not the decision of the government.
