Legislating morality

At one time "You can't legislate morality" was almost a mantra recited ad nauseum by those on the Left who opposed regulating such things as hardcore pornography, prostitution, drug use etc. They even opposed attempts to keep internet pornography from children in public libraries!

But when it comes to legislating against sweets, or tanning beds, or energy production, or fast food, or even the sale of pets, the Left apparently doesn't mind.

As it turns out, they were really not opposed to legislating morality after all. They just didn't want any legislation against immorality.
