Banning anything is bad in my opinion.
"Canned food is a perversion,' Ignatius said. 'I suspect that it is ultimately very damaging to the soul."

I don't think banning large sodas makes sense - This is one of those "it's your money, spend it how you want" situations. It'll also just lead to stupid crap like "buy one get one free" deals on smaller sodas.
Now on the other hand, Bloomberg in the past also had a proposal to limit/prohibit the use of food stamps on soda/sweetened beverages. In my opinion that's a perfectly legitimate proposal, as when someone(or an entity) is providing assistance, it's perfectly reasonable to have the expectation/stipulation that said assistance is not squandered.
I think public officials taking a proactive interest in public health is a good thing. However I think this particular effort is misguided.

Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
While it may be unhealthy, banning something because it is deemed unhealthy is bad. We wouldn't be able to eat the way we do if we let governments do so.
Well, I guess I will get my exercise when I walk up to the soda fountain to refill my coke a few times.
I'm with Goldsmith, banning is not the way to go.
agreed. the minute the government starts telling us what we can and can't put into our bodies, the whole thing starts to... oh wait... lol
+1 for treating people like grown ups and letting them make their own decisions.
