New York plans to ban sale of large sizes of sugary drinks
The New York Times:
New York City plans to enact a ban on the sale of large sodas and other sugary drinks at restaurants, movie theaters and street carts …
The sale of any cup or bottle of sweetened drink larger than 16 fluid ounces — about the size of a medium coffee, and smaller than a common soda bottle — would be prohibited under the first-in-the-nation plan, which could take effect as soon as next March.
