    New Yorkers preparing for ban on large sugary drinks that will begin March 12

    Under the first-of-its-kind prohibition approved by the city Board of Health last year, establishments from restaurants to mobile food carts can't sell sugary drinks larger than 16 oz. After a three-month grace period, the city will fine violators $200 per sale.
    Some restaurants are wasting no time in bringing themselves into compliance with the measure, intended to lower obesity and its impact on public health. Brother Jimmy's BBQ CEO Josh Lebowitz said the 1,000 new glasses were ordered for soft drinks at their five New York City locations. Currently, the restaurants serve soda in 24-oz. glasses—8 oz. more than the new limit. Finding the new glassware wasn't simple, Mr. Lebowitz said. His soda distributor doesn't make 16-oz. glasses.

    Ridiculous. If I want a large drink, I want a large drink. Especially in a restaurant where a 20 oz glass only has about 10 oz of liquid anyways after the top it off with ice first.

    What would New Yorkers do without Mike Bloomberg? I can't wait until he takes national office and can save all of us from ourselves. I feel like I'm right at the brink of being unhealthy.

    I understand the evils of sugar. In nearly every form it is not good for you.

    But neither is bacon.

    It would be a damn shame if he tripped over his enormous ego and splatted on the pavement.

    Worse shame everyone in NYC has to live around that cancerous cyst.

    Update:
    New York City's plan to ban large sugary drinks from restaurants, movie theaters and other establishments was invalidated by a judge on Monday, the day before the new law was to take effect.

    State Supreme Court Justice Milton Tingling in Manhattan called the regulation "arbitrary and capricious" and declared it invalid after the American Beverage Association and other business groups had sued the city challenging the ban.
