Soda pop ban lifted

(Why were soda cans banned?) 25 years ago, Pepsi and Coke took over the market against some local bottling companies so the government stepped in and said we're going to ban it and put it under the environmental protection act because they said aluminum was bad for the environment. (So is aluminum good for the environment now?) Oh, no, but we would still go to the mainland and buy soda. It's not illegal to possess it, just to sell it. (And you had three run ins with the law for selling, why?) The first time they sent some undercover cops to try to entice us to sell cans of cream soda which we use for our slushy machine. (Is everybody over the moon now that the ban has been lifted?) We we've been smuggling it in practically so it's nice we don't need to now.
