Recently, a ban on soda has pioneered by Mayor Bloomberg- the ban is to set a cap on the sizes sold. However, Bloomberg isn’t the one who is authorized to call the shots, it’s said to be the City Council’s territory. The Judge called Bloomberg’s soda ban “arbitrary and capricious,” and rejected the restrictions. However, Bloomberg states that he will challenge the ruling.
There are a few challenges with this ban:
1- It isn’t very consistent:
Because this only applies to sodas, this excludes all of the other sugary drinks, e.g. Starbucks, frostees, etc.
2. It would cost businesses money
Many businesses are already hurting. If this is going to be implemented, businesses are going to lose money from sales. To get them on board make an incentive.
3.Grocery stores and gas stations weren’t on the list
I think Bloomberg is on the right track, but he went for the layup before he had the ball in his hand.
