Nanny State Alert: NYC to Ban Big Gulps

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is planning to ban the sale of large sugary drinks known to most Americans as big gulps and smaller drinks such as Snapples. Why the need for the ban? To save people from themselves combat obesity of course.

The proposed first-in-the-nation ban would impose a 16-ounce limit on the size of sweetened drinks sold at restaurants, movie theaters, sports venues and street carts. It would apply to bottled drinks as well as fountain sodas.

The ban, which could take effect as soon as March, wouldn't apply to diet sodas, fruit juices, dairy-based drinks or alcoholic beverages.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Wednesday that he "thinks it's what the public wants the mayor to do."

Hmm....considering Diet soda has been shown to also cause people to gain weight and that fruit juice has just as much sugar as soda, this is clearly drink discrimination. But, there's a loophole!

But there's speculation that customers will just buy two 16-ounce bottles instead of one 20-ounce drink.
