BTW My youngest daughter have probably had maybe 32oz of soda in her life time. I don't think we even have a soda in the house.
Apparently it is the government's concern. They have a constitutional right to regulate.

What community do you live in? Somalia? In my community we have police officers, district attorney's, judges, and juries.

This law is the kinda of law that allows buffets to continue to exist and allows you to drink 64 oz drink without considering it as a multiple of a 16oz drink.
For the record, I am an unhealthy SOB in my eating habits, I eat McD's normally once a day, and rarely cook much outside Mac and Cheese. My dad forbid us from drinking soda growing up, and once I did, I basically only drink Coca Cola. At 45, my last 2 doctor checkups have come back in good shape for cholesterol and diabetes, I am 225 at 5'11 which obviously isn't great.

All that said, I will normally "top off" my coke at McD's when I first fill it up, and will refill it at least once. At restaurants (ie olive garden) I will usually get 3- 4 refills while I eat.

Nothing that has been said has made me think, yes this is the government's place to regulate.

But of course, it's FOR THE KIDS. :vomit:

Nah, every third visit I only drink water - lol (Diet soda has got to be the worst thing in creation, but also according to the article the law won't regulate it either. Seriously stupid law)

OK, this is more ridiculous than the scaremongering on soda, and not understanding value marketing. Prove that the Mayor of New York City has a constitutional right to regulate the amount of soda a restaurant may serve. Or if you like, prove that the federal government has a constitutional right to regulate the amount of soda a restaurant may serve.

Probably the first time I am ever in favor of judicial activism:
