    Industry Sues Over Sugary-Drinks Crackdown
    Friday, Oct 12, 2012 | Updated 4:53 PM EDT


    Soft-drink makers, restaurateurs and other businesses are suing to block the city's move to end the sale of super-sized, sugary drinks in many eateries.

    The American Beverage Association and others sued the city Friday. City officials had no immediate response.

    The city Board of Health approved the unprecedented regulation last month. It would stop restaurants, cafeterias and concession stands from selling soda and other high-calorie drinks in containers larger than 16 ounces.

    The rule is set to take effect in March.

    Mayor Michael Bloomberg calls it a reasonable, promising way to curb obesity.

    The lawsuit says the unelected health board shouldn't be telling people how much soda to drink. The suit also says the rule "burdens consumers and unfairly harms small businesses."

    Hope they win. They have plenty on their side, but the left only needs an activist judge. And we are talking NY here.

    They think that a drug would NEVER hurt anyone, they also want to ban cigarettes.


    I love how liberals think an underage teen is grown enough to have sex, get abortions without parental consent etc. and think that toys in happy meals force parents to buy happy meals for the kids, or that cereal commercials literally hypnotize children into grabbing the car keys, driving to the store, and buying sugary cereals.
