Nice job on the "sugar-free soda" video!
Good presentation and speaking skills by Sanjana!

BTW, does that law apply to all sugars, natural and artificial?

Would have been nice to have the sound "louder". Focus sharper at times. Etc.
But what a great job by a 6th Grader!

Would have been nice for the article to have a link right to the video, as it is buried in a dense page.

Ultimately, the question behind the scenes --that is not addressed--is, Should a government be involved in forcing decisions of this nature, or should these be decisions for the individual to make on their own?

Berkeley-ities want it to be a matter of personal, individual choice when it comes to "pot", but don't care about government interference into your choice of beverage.
