Will Telluride be the first town in the U.S. to establish a significant sugary drink tax to combat the obesity epidemic? Battle lines are being drawn, and I am told that this initiative is controversial even in a town that has banned plastic bags!
What’s at stake is the health of our children. I say “our” even though I live in California because whatever is decided in Telluride will reverberate throughout the nation and the world.
