    It was a huge fight, but liberals finally got their way to permit, license and inspect food trucks. Now that they know who everyone is, it's time to destroy them.

    Legislation bodes ill for California's food trucks - latimes.com

    Maybe the food trucks will become mobile marijuana dispensaries instead.

    A state assemblyman wants to significantly limit where lunch wagons can operate, keeping them even farther from schools than marijuana dispensaries. His legislation could put many of the mobile kitchens out of business just as the industry is surging with creativity.

    The other trucks are contributing to an epidemic of childhood obesity on California school campuses by supplying youngsters with greasy burgers, sodas and high-calorie ice cream, Monning said. He wants to ban all food trucks and pushcarts from within 1,500 feet of elementary, middle and high schools from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on school days. Pot stores must be 600 feet from schools.

    In Los Angeles, boundaries would triple the current limit of 500 feet. In many other cities, Monning's measure would create a new no-go zone. Food truck operators say the restrictions would put large swaths of their market — as much as 80% of streets in some places — out of reach.

    Judging from the complaints, it looks like the end result will be no food sold at all within the no-go zones.

    They're protecting the school cafeteria's monopolies.
