The government take things too far?

Regardless of how bad sugary sodas can be for someone, why ban the sale of any larger than 16 oz? Do others not see how beyond wrong this is? What's next?

You are right. Maybe I should clarify. But still if they can do this there, what makes others think it can't happen everywhere

Even if they ban the size people will drink the same amount of soda it'll just take mire bottles

I think we consume far too much soda, which is full of empty calories and addictive, toxic chemicals. That being said, I think this is a poor idea and isn't going to be very effective.

I know! That's what I was thinking too. Actually the sales tax on 2 would be greater than the sales tax on one larger than 16 oz. I think it's more about money than making people healthier.

But that should be the persons choice, not the governments.

Why should someone be able to choose to be unhealthy? I mean really it makes no sense.
