New York’s Soda Ban

New York’s Mayor Bloomberg would like to pass a law banning the sale of cups of soda larger than 16oz. “Nobody is taking away any of your rights,” Bloomberg said, “This way, we’re just telling you ‘That’s a lot of soda.'” There’s so much wrong with this it’s tough to know where to start. I’m not a soda drinker, and I understand it’s not a healthy drink, but is it the State’s place to put this kind of restriction on the sale of legal food or drink? Should the sale of double cheese burgers be restricted? How about that deep fried blooming onion? Where does it end?
