I've heard about this issue in the news but haven't spent any time thinking about it--other than thinking it was silly.

This is something that does not need to be legislated. The government should be there to keep law and order, not to be our nannies.


Do you know that I completely stopped drinking all soda at least a year ago I think and I lost tons of weight. Plus, it is unhealthy!

If they want to ban something completely, they should get rid of cigarettes. LOL

Have been just drinking bottled water for last 20 years ~ they should ban alcohol and drugs ~ destroying families ~ tired of the anti smoking /seen first hand what alcohol and drugs do to families ~ We need to get back to 'basics' ~ simplify life ~

I think they should ban the politicians!

I don't smoke, drink or do drugs, off and on I will drink a soda or a dessert or eat a candy bar. The actual culprit in all this is the poison, known as sugar. It is one of the worst foods, along with all white flour products, that anyone can eat. I believe it is the reason for the bad health of this society. Along with the cost of food that makes people have to buy pasta, rice or any of the foods that fill up the family members, even if it is not good for them. They are hungry and need to eat, but now people eat processed, sweet, foods with no nutrition.

But even so, I do not think that the government should have the right to ban what we eat or buy. They have their nose in our business so much that we are one of the least free countries in the world.

I really don't see why Obama and Romney are concerning themselves with the economy or nuclear weapons in Iran or what's happening in Syria when there's such an obviously burning issue as New Yorkers buying 16 oz soda to be contended with.

Thank you all for your responses.  It's just STUPID and embarrassing for New York IMO.
