How, by making you get up and get/ask for a refill a little sooner? You're getting a smaller cup, and you're not going to lose all your intake progress by getting up twice instead of once. The only real place this is going to affect anyone is in theaters.


Because it increases the cost of packaged beverages with minimal gain to the consumer.

Places this ban is affecting don't really offer packaged drinks, and even if somehow the less than a cent per drink at McDonalds increases the costs of liter bottles at 7-11 it still won't really "greatly" affect anyone.

I'm usually against these types of laws, but now I've become kind of "meh" about it. We've all shown that we don't know how to act, so government has to step in sometimes and do it for us. Yes, freedom, personal responsibility, liberty, blah, blah, all that too. But Smash said what I was thinking. If they could tell me I can't smoke in a restaurant anymore and I have to wear a seat belt, then they can tell the rabid soda drinkers out there that they need to slow it down.


This^

I have met too many people who have no idea the harm they are doing to their health with their current diets and really don't care to listen to the Constant barrage of information that the Media throws at them. Then they are normally the same people who were never given a healthy meal growing up too. Their taste beds have been train to like all the prepackage food that their overwork mothers brought, because the ads said that they could serve their hungry rug rats in less then 30 minutes.

Are these people so dumb that the only way to prevent them from wrapping hamlike fists around yet another 44oz soda is to via legislative portion control, which forces them to heave and wheezes as they raise thier tired, bloated, frame to the counter to beg for another serving of soda. I assume these misshapen masses will be so dissuaded by the fear of extraneous excercise that they will cease their struggle for liquid and choke down their triple stacked burgers dry, resting their lard filled limbs for theIr arduous trek towards the door.

I like how your post is based on the presumption that they're not riding scooters. How naïve can you be?

That further proves my point that this is bad implementation. If they can scoot to the counter, all hope is lost.

I rarely dine-in, in fact most of my orders are at drive-thrus if I have the choice (Little Ceasars pizza for example), when I'm on long drives. The small town I live in is one thing, but the 'big city' I go to is 60 miles. Sorry if I misunderstood that this law would only affect diners and not patrons in their cars as well.

Next.

Yes. Also they decide elections, hence the current state of campaigning.

Stop at a gas station and get a larger drink? Added benefit of being less watered down. Solved both your problems for you.

Anyone drinking a "dozen cans of soda a day" versus getting a couple 2 liters is already unconcerned with the cost of packaging.

There is no "cost of packaged beverages" it's all arbitrary. Soda costs about 9 cents per metric tonne to produce, it's distribution cost to most fast food outlets is only slightly higher. The "packaging" for it costs about 1 cent per drink.

The cost is from redesigning the drinks, packaging etc. to comply, not the actual change in cost of plastic/glass blown.

I'm also not talking about the premix/syrup cannisters, as those are obv. unaffected.

What's the redesign? Are there places out there that sell 32oz fountain drinks but don't sell 16oz or 12oz sizes?

That's what they should have done to begin with. The whole idea of simply banning certain sizes is mind-boggling stupid, as previously stated. Imagine a $0.05 tax on a 21oz or larger, and then assume for giggles that in NYC, 1 million medium or larger drinks are sold in a day. That's $50,000 in tax revenue per day. Missed opportunity indeed.
