This law doesn`t ban anything. It`s just to make people second guess how many gallons of sugar they need to drink with one meal, and if they decide the answer to that question is "lots of gallons" they can go ahead and get another. Or the free refill.

Anyone who thinks this is an attack on their freedoms really needs a perspective check.

Last I checked the U.S. was a country of freedoms. It`s someone`s choice to have a large soda.

They`re 80% ice anyways, there`s not much liquid in them...

I remember one time my wife`s brother and his wife took us to a Wendy`s and we ordered a "medium" sized drink each, only to be presented with a monstrous cup, all the while they ordered a "big" each, finding a gigantic plastic cup delivered through the window.



Original article in NPR

I`m completely for freedom of choice, but when your choices are between: "huge", "gigantic" and "brobdingnagian", the whole "freedom" argument goes to hell doesn`t it?

Kind of like during every election time: choose between a giant douche or a turd sandwich.

This is just freaking judgmental. I`m sure the poster is an adonis look-a-like.

This is stupid photo. She doesn`t look that fat. It`s just loose skin from age or from having lost weight.

Last time I checked heart disease was the number one cause of death in the US. Not saying this law will really do anything for that, but overweight people in your country ARE a big issue (no pun intended, happy coincidence :-) )

I think IAB is actively trolling it`s own members now. Floppy woman arms are caused by soda. DERP!
no woman had flabby arms till soda came along. Right? Thank goodness Bloomberg came along along to save us from the flood of flabby feminine flaps.

If the government manages your health care, law enforcement, rehabilitation, disability payments, low-income dental plans, etc., it, like any other insurance company, will want to limit its pay-outs. It`s the trade off for a taste of socialism. Most people don`t mind seat-belt laws and machine gun restrictions because of the overall benefits in lowering death and injury rates. One day, 32-oz. Big Gulps will be looked back upon with horror, the way we do the days of omnipresent smoking.

Sodas, cigarettes, seatbelts... it`s only a matter of time before the government is able to come into your house and make whatever changes THEY deem necessary. Apparently we`re a free nation - but "Big Brother" needs to make free choices for us.

"when the F*CK did everyone decide that gov`t should influence an individuals PERSONAL choice"

At least around the time they implemented seat belt and helmet laws if not earlier....

those look more like arms that have lost some weight, but maybe it`s age, either way people should be allowed to do what they want to themselves.

All the people saying there is more pressing issues makes me think Bloomberg is just drawing attention away from those topics with something stupid. "Hey look over here, no no, not that, the soda, look at the soda"

If she flaps her arms/wings she might be the first human to fly unaided.
