I think that the soda ban law is wrong! We the people have the right to choose. I'm not a New Yorker , but it will effect other states ! Basically NY is becoming a nanny state and the way it's developing is drastic! The size of our soda is not the size of our guts! All they want is more and more money out of smaller cups with a big $ sign written all over! I makes me furious that even after 9/11 NY tries to contain the people with a rope off Tax! Like we need to be tied up by your sick comments on our weight! It's unsanitary and not fit for human purification!

Hello. This is my first time in a debate; however, since you didn't define your words, I'll try to get it close to what you mean.

soda==>noun==>a sweet drink consisting of soda water, flavoring, and often ice cream.
http://www.merriam-webster.com...

ban==>verb==>to prohibit especially by legal means ; also : to prohibit the use, performance, or distribution of.
http://www.merriam-webster.com...

law==>noun==>a binding custom or practice of a community : a rule of conduct or action prescribed or formally recognized as binding or enforced by a controlling authority (2) : the whole body of such customs, practices, or rules
http://www.merriam-webster.com...

wrong==>adjective==>an injurious, unfair, or unjust act : action or conduct inflicting harm without due provocation or just cause
http://www.merriam-webster.com...

Also, would you please clarify whether the soda ban was COMPLETE ban or did the government just limit the amount?

P.S.
Please state the normal rules.

Wish you luck. :)

"Fat people are bad" is NO excuse to punish physically fit people, (don't mean to sound cocky) like me, for what people do to themselves. Also, this is America ! If I want to drink a large coke I can drink a large coke!!
I would love to debate this with you separately, if of course you would like to!

Ishallannoyyo;
I cannot tell if you are serious or joking, but I would love to have a debate over the topic separately if you are Pro the recent ban!
