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.
