New York City plans to ban the sale of big-sized (16 ounces or larger) sugary drinks from restaurants and food carts. Would you support such a ban in Lawrence?

Is it healthy to walk behind a gas powered mower?

Is it good for your eyes to read in dim light?

Is it healthy to get only six hours sleep a night?

Where do you stop?

At the point we allow the government to regulate alcohol and tobacco, regulations on soda and other unhealthy substances should be allowed as well.

As a person who went from drinking the equivalent of at least 8 cans of soda a day, down to only 1 can of soda a day, I would support the ban.

God know, Lawrence needs a ban on large size soda a lot more then New York City does.

I wouldn't support a ban, but I would support any business that made it possible to get something smaller - even if it was at the same price.
