The Los Angeles City Council is set to vote on a moratorium on new fast food restaurants in the neighborhood of South Los Angeles. Some city officials say the high obesity rate goes hand-in-hand with the limited restaurant options in the community. Public health records indicate 30 percent of adults in south L.A. are obese compared to just 19 percent in metropolitan Los Angeles.

City Councilman Bernard Parks says, "Our communities have an extreme shortage of quality foods."

Supporters of the year-long moratorium hope to attract restaurants that serve healthier food to the area. But California Restaurant Association spokesman Andrew Casana says, "What's next security guards at the door saying 'you're overweight, you can't have a cheeseburger?'"

Supermarkets don't stay in business long when there is rampant shoplifting going on.

Too many state and local taxes attached to a bottle to outlaw them.
