The latest from Nanny Bloomberg:

Quote:
A new proposal would require New York City retailers to keep tobacco products out of sight under a first-in-the-nation proposal aimed at reducing the youth smoking rate, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday.

The legislation would require stores to keep tobacco products in cabinets, drawers, under the counter, behind a curtain or in other concealed spots. They could only be visible when an adult is making a purchase or during restocking

How long before you think this would be challenged in court? (were it to be implemented)

Soon there would be an entire section of each NYC store that is curtained off from anyone 21 and under:
***cigarrettes
*** Large sodas
*** alcohol
*** raunchy porn

New York State Supreme Court Appellate Division tells Bloomberg:

Get Your Hands Off My Soda!

Appeals court strikes down NYC's big-soda ban

Appeals judges say NYC's ban on big, sugary drinks at restaurants is unconstitutional


Associated PressAssociated Press – 3 hours ago

NEW YORK (AP) -- New York City's crackdown on big, sugary sodas is staying on ice.

An appeals court ruled Tuesday that New York City's Board of Health exceeded its legal authority and acted unconstitutionally when it tried to put a size limit on soft drinks served in city restaurants.

The state Supreme Court Appellate Division panel upheld a lower court decision that had delayed the measure before it took effect in March.

The rule would stop many eateries from selling non-diet soda and other sugar-laden beverages in containers bigger than 16 ounces.

The beverage industry and other opponents say the measure is riddled with exceptions, unfair and ineffective.

The city's law department has promised an appeal.

Reduce the obesity rate in New York City? Fat chance!
More New Yorkers than ever are living large, despite Nanny Bloomberg’s war on sugary drinks and fast foods, statistics obtained by The Post reveal.
The city’s obesity rate among adults has skyrocketed 25 percent since Mayor Bloomberg took office in 2002, city Health Department figures show.
That year, nearly one in five New Yorkers was considered obese. Now almost one in four is.
The figures are surprising given Gotham’s residents are doing better according to other health indicators.
For example, the percentage of adults who drink one or more sugar-sweetened beverages a day dropped to 28 percent last year from 36 percent in 2007, says the Health Department’s Take Care New York 2012 report.
The data also show more people are physically active and eating vegetables.
Modal Trigger
Mayor Bloomberg discusses sugary drinks at a 2012 press conference.
Both improvements come after Hizzoner pushed for the expansion of bike lanes and healthier school meals.
The city also banned unhealthy trans fats from eatery menus starting in 2007.
The obesity epidemic is one reason Bloomberg and city Health Commissioner Tom Farley issued the edict last year to limit the sizes of soda and other sugary drinks to 16 ounces. It has been struck down in court.
Health officials admit fat is a formidable foe.
“Despite recent declines, sugary-drink consumption remains far higher today than it was in the 1970s, when the obesity epidemic began to surge,’’ a department spokeswoman said.
“Nationwide, adult obesity rates have been going up for at least the last 30 years, and we expect a lag in changes in the adult obesity rate after a change in diet.
“We are seeing declines in obesity in children, and [the] fall in sugary-drink consumption may have prevented our city from having even higher obesity rates.”
Nutrition experts praised the Bloomberg administration for releasing anti-obesity ad campaigns and requiring calorie counts for meals in fast-food joints.
But they said education goes only so far.
“It’s easier to gain weight than lose weight. We live in a toxic environment of junk food and excess. It’s a culture we still embrace,” said Lisa Young, an NYU nutrition professor who writes The Portion Teller blog.
Noting that the city cut tobacco use by banning smoking in bars and restaurants and boosting cigarette taxes, Young said similar efforts must be waged for obesity.
“We need radical change in the environment. That’s why I supported the soda ban,” she said.




So despite all of Nanny Bloomberg's nose poking into NYC residents eating habits, obesity has increased 25%.

:lol: :lol:

New York Soda Ban Loses Again
Court of appeals rules Big Apple residents can buy big sugary beverages.


By Celina Durgin

New York’s appeals court struck down New York City’s ban on the sale of sweetened drinks larger than 16 ounces.

The state’s Court of Appeals ruled Thursday that the Board of Health appointed by former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg exceeded the bounds of its regulatory authority in passing the law on March 12, 2013.

The four-to-two decision disappointed city officials who had hoped the court would reinstate the ban after two lower courts had already ruled against it, according to the New York Times.

The city stayed silent on whether it plans to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. An appeal is unlikely since the case concerns local government authority and legislation rather than federal issues, the Post reported.

Bloomberg promoted the proposal as a way to control health conditions such as obesity and diabetes. The restriction would have applied to restaurants, delis, movie theaters, stadiums, and street carts, hitting big companies like Coca-Cola Co.

Restaurants, theater owners, and beverage companies sued, arguing that an appointed board, as opposed to legislative bodies, lacked the authority to impose the ban.

In her dissent, Judge Susan P. Read said the ruling overlooked precedent granting the Board of Health large scope to address public-health issues, such as prohibiting the use of lead paint in homes.

The ruling thwarts public-health advocates and the city’s Board of Health in their efforts to enact measures limiting the consumption of high-calorie drinks known to contribute to obesity.

The ban’s applicability had been questioned since its initial proposal. The restrictions were inconsistent, affecting establishments such as fast-food franchises while leaving convenience stores like 7-Eleven exempt. And though New Yorkers couldn’t purchase huge sports drinks for workouts, equally huge milkshakes and fruit juices remained fair game.

The American Beverage Association, the industry’s trade group, said in a statement that it approved the ruling and that the proposal “would have created an uneven playing field for thousands of small businesses in the city and limited New Yorkers’ freedom of choice.”

The really sad thing is that two fucking people still voted in support of this tyrannical shit. It's fucking shocking that we have a sizable minority in this country who wants to turn this place into a complete Totalitarian state.
