What Would You Ban in Beacon Hill?

A number of surrounding communities have deep-sixed some interesting items and activities over the past year, but should Beacon Hill join the banning bandwagon?

Concord’s so-called bottle ban became a bylaw earlier this month, Brookline recently banned plastic bags and Styrofoam cups, and Arlington’s Town Meeting this fall upheld a seasonal leaf blower ban. Meanwhile, home-cooked foods have been forced out of many schools, an ostensible attempt to protect against allergies and childhood obesity.

Beacon Hill hasn’t exactly hopped on this banning bandwagon, but should it?

Is there an activity or item you would want to see banned out of environmental, health or quality-of-life concerns? Let us know in the comments section below.

Why not tell people how long to grow their fingernails, what breakfast cereal to avoid or what color to pasint their house. If you must insist on protyecting us from ourselve3s then how about a ban on AK47's?
