Poll: What do you think of NYC’s new ban on big sugary drinks?

Big, sugary drinks were banned in New York City today.

The city’s Board of Health passed a measure banning the sale of big sodas and other sugar-laden drinks at restaurants, concession stands and other eateries.

There’s now a 16-ounce size limit on cups and bottles of non-diet soda, sweetened teas, and other high-calorie beverages.

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg proposed the ban last spring, and it was given the OK by health experts after several months of review, according to a story by The Associated Press.

The ban applies to fast-food eateries, movie theaters, cafeterias at work and many other places selling fast food.

Curiously, though, the ban doesn’t cover convenience stores. Isn’t that where you buy Big Gulps?

Along with convenience stories, it doesn’t cover drinks sold in supermarkets.

Would it be OK if Seattle put a ban on large sodas and other sugary drinks? Take our poll.
