NY City is proposing a ban on sugary drinks sold in containers over 16 oz. Take one last Big Gulp of your Slurpee, City dwellers. It might be your last. (Nice graphic showing what is and is not acceptable HERE)

The powers that be in New York City are proposing a ban on certain  types of sugary drinks in quantities over 16 oz's.  This is in response to health concerns, especially for children. 

Here is a chart that illustrates what is and is not a qualified drink and the allowable quantity is can be sold in.  Good idea? Bad idea? How do you think interest group politics will affect this proposal? Will it pass and become local law?
