We asked our 12 For ’12 Facebook fans what they thought of New York City’s new ban on sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces. Restaurants will be barred from serving sugary beverages in cups or bottles larger than 16 ounces (0.47 liters).

Here’s what you said:

Brooke Mueller It’s not an answer, but it’s a start....

Chris Filtz How much soda my neighbor drinks is none of my business anymore than telling them who they can date is any of my business.

Sarah June Galassi No. Apparently “we” forgot the lesson of prohibition .... :(

Anthony Kolodziej The ban will not include refills. A person can fill up their 16 oz. cup as many times as they want during a visit. This ban is just trying get people to drink less. For example, eating a fun size bag of chips vs. a normal size. You’re limited to the amount making it harder to over eat. Poor food choices is a REAL problem in America and this is a small step to hopefully change it.

Jessica ‘Zurawski’ Owens I don’t agree with us having to get to the point of inflicting people’s freedoms for something as silly as this. However, I don’t want to pay higher health insurance premiums because everyone has diabetes from unhealthy lifestyles. If you can’t manage your own health, then apparently the government has to do it for you, but it is a sad day that it has come to this ...

Jason Daley Lock the soda drinkers up with the raw milk drinkers! That will teach them all.

Esther Schock Mehrer Oh, honestly, when was the last time you bought a 16 oz. watered down soda? Much ado about nothing.

Amy Emerson This is ONE very, very, very small step in the right direction for our society.

Kenny Laffin It’s ridiculous!

Jeni Helke No, I think people need to start taking responsibility for their own choices, instead of removing their choices.
