A Ban on 'Sugary' Drinks?

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says more than half of New York City's adults are overweight or obese, and he believes that banning large, "sugary" drinks in restaurants will help reduce the problem.  If it becomes law, the proposal would make it illegal for restaurants to sell certain drinks in sizes larger than 16 ounces.

There's no shortage of critics of this plan.  McDonald's, Coca-Cola, and some everyday New Yorkers believe that restaurants should be able to sell whatever size beverages they want - and that consumers should be able to buy them.  Others support the proposal, saying it would help cut down on unhealthy diets.

What we'd like to know is what you think of the mayor's proposal.
