Some states are considering legislation that would prohibit the presence of soda vending machines in high schools. Supporters of the policy believe that the vending machine ban would encourage students to make healthier dietary choices, which would help them to perform better in school. Those who oppose the vending machine ban argue that soft drink companies pay schools to have vending machines in their halls, which generates much-needed school funding.
