July 1st of last year, Nanjing implemented a policy that forbid all food and drink on trains. However, in the past few days a news article about a married couple punished for drinking on the Nanjing subway has lead to discussion on Weibo. The Nanjing subway has stated that if you drink liquid in train carriages, you will be punished according to the situation. Many people believe refraining from eating is reasonable, but not allowing liquids is too inhumane. Netizens say they might as well forbid breathing, sweating, and farting.
