NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg to ban 16 oz ‘sugary drinks’ [Darleen Click]
Mayor Michael Bloomberg is reportedly on the verge of taking serious aim at sugary drinks, as the New York Times says the mayor wants to ban such drinks larger than 16 ounces from nearly all dining establishments in the city.
The New York Times says that the mayor wants to ban sugary drinks in nearly all restaurants, movie theaters and food carts on the street. The city’s proposed ban is reportedly aimed at reducing obesity.
The paper says that any sweetened drink larger than 16 fluid ounces could be prohibited by next March if the ban goes into effect.
Psssst… buddy, I got, like, two 8 ounce drinks I could let you have!
Well, like what should be expected of someone who would endorse Charlie Rangel?
