You Can Still Get Big Sweet Drinks in NY

New York judge sours ban on the size of sweet drinks.

Several months ago, we reported that New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg intended to limit the serving size of sugar-laden sodas. Now, a N.Y. Supreme Court judge has ruled that the ban is unconstitutional and "fraught with arbitrary and capricious consequences." Indeed, there were loopholes in the proposed rule. For example, hot chocolate would have been limited to small- or medium-sized cups, but milkshakes of any size could be served because they are more than 51% milk.
