Are you a big soda drinker?
If you are, you'll notice some changes if you ever visit New York City.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg's ban on large sugar-sweetened drinks was approved on Thursday by the cities board of health.
What do you think about that kind of soda ban? Probably no surprise to you, people in Abilene mostly think the soda ban takes away peoples rights.
"It's ridiculous," Cindy Lane a soda drinker said. "Its taking away the rights of peoples freedom."
Luckily here in the Big Country people can still drink and buy all the soda they desire- something they call a basic right.
"It would kind of be like infringing on my rights as an American," John Cox another soda drinker said.
Would Abilene Mayor Norm Archibald consider it?
"To be real honest with you, no, number one I believe that government intrusion into whether you have a big gulp or a 10oz. or 20oz., I think that is way too much of a reach," Archibald said.
Mayor Bloomberg's reasoning for the ban to fight obesity, if that's the case, some are asking, where does it stop?
"Because what happens to the next thing that comes a long? You don't need to be eating this or that," Archibald said.
Under the plan all restaurants including fast-food joints, delis, movie theaters, sports stadiums and even food carts will be stopped from selling sugar-sweetened drinks larger than 16 oz.
