NYC Sugary Drink Ban Ruled Illegal

sugary drink(CNN) — New York City’s ban on large sugary drinks has officially fizzled out.

Thursday, New York’s Court of Appeals ruled the ban is illegal and that the city’s health department overstepped its bounds when it approved a 16-ounce cap on sugary beverages.

Two lower courts had already ruled against the plan.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg had pushed for the ban as a way to fight obesity and other health problems.
