Snack Tax

Here we go with more taxes.  IL just instituted a “snack tax” on sugary foods and drinks, much like an alcohol and tobacco tax.  The tax should act as a deterrent to the consumption of food/drink that makes one fat, but it is also feeding the government piggy bank.  Will this lead to other intrusive taxes?  Maybe a sunbathing tax to deter people from doing something that may lead to skin cancer?  This could be a pretty slippery slope.
