    Default Should being fat in the United States be illegal?

    Should it? What would happen if it was?

    I predict a marked uptick in the crime rate.

    If being fat was illegal then 1/3 of the population would be in jail.

    Something tells me the U.S. government wouldn’t have a problem with that. They would just build more prisons.

    No, it shouldn't. Even if there are health-related costs to the greater public, I don't think "banning" it is the appropriate way to go.

    Why should they punish the victims of a terrible food environment which the government continues to openly support and condone?

    Yeah, sounds like a great idea. Then we can make having too low of an IQ illegal. Then we can make having cavities illegal. Everyone knows legislation fixes everything.

    Considering the high sugar content—Juice should be illegal.

    If being fat is illegal, then you have to make a lot of convenience foods illegal too. After all, who gets the harsher sentence - the crackhead or the crack dealer?

    I believe this is what is called "the million dollar question."
