Where do you report people who abuse them and how effective is the reporting? I've seriously looked and every place I've found has required your name and contact number or a direct call to the office. In my area, everybody knows everybody and the ones who are into pills would rob you or burn your house down in the blink of an eye.
They are nasty, nasty people and those who actually follow the laws sometimes fear for their lives....or at least the lives of their family.
Then people should have the FREEDOM to not buy other peoples junk food and not be required to pay their healthcare bills. This isn't about telling people what they can and can't do with their own money, why didn't you get that?

By your reasoning, a person would be unable to purchase flour, sugar, eggs, butter, milk, oatmeal, raisins, fruit, nuts, potatoes, cooking oil, among many other perfectly healthy items...because you know why? We can make cookies, chips and candy with those things too!
Can't buy any mayonnaise or buttermilk or worcestershire sauce- Might make some ranch dressing! That's unhealthy!
#- Apples, berries, bananas- oops- I can make a pie with those!
Oh crap- WATER! Can't buy water. I can add lemons to that and have lemonade! OH NO! Someone talk to the water utility companies and get these poor peoples' water shut off ASAP! THEY MIGHT BE MAKING LEMONADE!!!!
You moral police are so disheartening. Yeah, sure...people should eat better. Those people shouldn't be feeding their kids that. I agree. I wouldn't feed it to mine, if I had any. Who the hell are you, though, to decide how a person wants to live..or die for that matter?

So, if someone is abusing their children in public, I should just go on with my live, because that are not my children? Is it always so cold and dark on your planet?
No, society has to have an eye open for the unprotected and should step in in obvious malicious deeds - like force-feeding your children junk stuff on food stamps.
The government autorities WILL get to know who bought what with those stamps, as they will get the bill for them, right?

I can always tell when it's food stamp day and I'm at the grocery store, simply because these people are easy to spot and then it's confirmed when you're in line behind one of them. There is a reason these people are easy to spot and it's not because they're the spitting image of a healthy human.
