    drinks with TONS of sugar are worse for your health than marijuana.

    I'm positive this will have an impact. Not because I love big government, but because people are generally lazy. If given the option to get up from you seat to get another drink, most will stay right where they are.

    The truth is most folks don't think... period. Someone says "Super size and you'll get X for just Y more in money", those people think wow, that's a bargain instead of thinking, I don't really need that much. This will have an immediate backlash, but as long as Bloomberg sticks to it, it'll have an impact overtime.

    unfortunately, many Americans are too lazy & stupid to better their health.

    sometimes they need a little nudge. Not saying this is the right nudge, though.

    As a NYC resident this will have zero impact on me. I've pretty much cut out my soda and sweet drink consumption.

    A better nudge might be to tell people up front just how many calories they're consuming. Another could be to charge obese people more for health insurance.

    Can you imagine a college campus if all that was openly legal?
    Where in the constitution does it say the government can outlaw that stuff?
