Its not the job of government,at whatever level. to protect people from themselves, to micro-manage their lives and say you can do this or that with your life or your body. In case you haven’t noticed, this blog is not in favor of the nanny state. What government should do as a protector but not director of society is to develop and broadcast good information on what is good for you and what isn’t good for you. Individual citizens can then make decisions about their own lives.
