It's widely known that Dunkin' Donuts is regrouping since legislation was passed to require four hours of nutritional education and registration before buying donuts or other potentially lethal junk foods. Furthermore, you would need to obtain a license issued by the state police and be fingerprinted. Purchases will be limited to a half-dozen at a time to curtail purchases of donuts by those with the intent of supplying donuts to unlicensed individuals or the banned morbidly obese.
