NYC Soda Ban Ruled Unconstitutional


frick you Bloomberg, you piece of shite...

quote:

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City's crackdown on big, sugary sodas is staying on ice.

An appeals court ruled Tuesday that New York City's Board of Health exceeded its legal authority and acted unconstitutionally when it tried to put a size limit on soft drinks served in city restaurants.

The state Supreme Court Appellate Division panel upheld a lower court decision that had delayed the measure before it took effect in March.
The rule would stop many eateries from selling non-diet soda and other sugar-laden beverages in containers bigger than 16 ounces.

The beverage industry and other opponents say the measure is riddled with exceptions, unfair and ineffective.

The city's law department has promised an appeal.

You are just the idiot that this legislation was aimed at.

Why don't you just raise your kid instead of relying on the government to do it? The horror!

I give my kids watered down apple juice. The BS soda ban didn't effect it one way or the other. People don't belong to you.

Ah, I see. So you endorse this soda ban because you don't believe other parents are responsible enough to raise their kids healthily and their fattiness will become a burden to us all.

Yeah, I'm not willing to give up the freedom to do something so simple as choose what I would like to eat or drink to entertain that notion.

Have we not already seen this? Is obesity rates not higher than ever? Is the gov't not spending more than ever for healthcare costs tied to obesity?

Ahh, I see that you aren't a big fan of personal freedom and the accountability that come with it.
