This is a huge waste of dollars not just because the government is top-heavy and inefficient, but because the cause of obesity in America is obvious to even the casual observer. The government makes people fat, end of story. How this occurs is slightly more complex, but a typical 8th grader–the equivalent of a 2nd grader in the 1950s–can follow this reasoning.
The feel-gooders and foodicrats bemoaning the food desert “crisis” fail to take into account that, even in poverty-plagued, welfare wrecked urban neighborhoods, the free market is at work. If “Whole Foods” really had a viable market in an inner city burg, they would open a store.
Eating, in the 21st Century, commands a role as American’s favorite recreational sport.
First of all, Federal Law is in conflict with state laws that legalize pot. Whether or not you agree with this, the biggest impact will be on the most important role of the Federal Government, and that is to protect and defend our borders and our people.

This is not “Hansel and Gretel,” this is the feeding trough of the public school free food trap.
Do not wussify this grand state with your “sodium initiatives!” Colorado is, after all, a state dotted with a hundred thousand salt-licks.
