What do you think about this Ban on Lrg Sugary drinks ?
Should ALL states do this ?
It's stupid really. If someone wanted a larger drink, they'd simply buy more than one. I live in NYC and personally, I don't see the big deal of the ban but I also don't drink that much soda in one sitting.
So freaking stupid. So you can't buy a 32oz soda? You can just buy 4 8oz sodas. Come the fuck on.
Agreed. Dyes, additives, chemicals, GMOs, these are what we should be banning from our foods. The food companies should be banned from using these things, individuals should not be banned from consuming products.
Quoting LIMom1105:No. I don't agree with this one at all. Why not ban food coloring first? Probably it's in too many foods. If people want it, they'll still get it.
I think its ridiculous and it opens the door for even more absurd govt involvement when they just need to mind their own fucking business.
If people want to drink sugary drinks and risk their health, they should be allowed to. The govt sucks.
No, I don't agree with it.
I think the ban is ridiculous and pointless. No, I don't think all states should do this. It's an individual's responsibility to moderate their sugar intake and that of their families... not the government's.
I don't give a flying f*k about this.
Yes! Do it! I love it!
But, then, we don't drink that shit, so we don't really care if they ban the large drinks.
Listen, it's not like they're banning soda altogether, just the large size. Those cups never fit in my car's holders anyway, so it's no great loss.
I think I'll wait to see the statistics on how this works out before I concrete my opinion.
I don't like the law or the need/desire for it, but I understand it's intention. We live in a world where individual choices effect the greater whole and we struggle with how to deal with these issues. Sugary drinks can provide a rather large percentage of calories for many people that then contribute to numerous health issues that cost all people more.
Many of the great debates in our society and no cafemom right now relate to how individual choices are really only partially individual, as many choices effect all people. I imagine such debates will continue forever.
