Like I mentioned global warming earlier, I honestly feel it's gonna be too late before enough of a change is made because people don't want their conveniences to go away. I feel if we are to save ourselves from ourself, we gotta be forced. Slightly off topic and pessimistic (on the human race) but I don't think I'm too far fetched.
In general I'm completely against this, but this is the one point that makes me lean slightly towards it. In general, humans are idiots who are just going to kill themselves in the end (not suicide, but the race as a whole. Eventually the Earth just won't be able to sustain life) Nowadays it seems the vast majority of us need giant warning labels on things saying THIS IS BAD FOR YOU or THIS WILL HURT THE ENVIRONMENT. It's kind of sad really.

Question: if this comes to your state what would you do about it?I don't have a major problem with it. The government, imo, already shrinks cereals and other foods and overcharge them so it can't get any more worse. (Have you ever ate a bag of chips and noticed how much air is in it?)I don't enjoy the approach as you guys said though.
If this came to my state I'd be majorly upset. But like every other stupid law that upsets me, I'd probably just grit my teeth, complain a little, on move on with life. Once the government decides on something, there isn't much you can do about it (yes, yes, you can rally and protest or whatever, but like it was stated before, humans are lazy, we don't want to get off our comfy couches to protest. We'll just complain on Facebook)

Some people don't want to keep refilling their cups; like if they wanted more than one thing of coke then why should they go back to the same place instead of getting a big cup and probably saving it later? Like this is hard to do if you are let's say, riding in your car, or not in the same establishment to do the refill. And no driving back isn't going to work; who honesty would let someone drive back hours later to get a refill or even want to do so?But people also need to stop wasting food/being lazy as well. Just because certain percentages do it doesn't mean that everyone does it.
This is my point. I rarely order such large drinks. Usually when I go for fast food, I don't get drinks at all because I have a water bottle with me almost 24/7. But when I go to a movie theater I like getting the biggest option possible so I don't have to go back out and refill it, not because I'm too lazy to walk, but I don't want to miss anything. And for a two hour movie, that's a reasonable amount of pop to quench your thirst from the popcorn! Anyways, I can see what the government is trying to do here, but it's not the right way to do it. I'm a big girl I know when I'm putting crap into my body. If other people can't make big-kid decisions and keep their bodies in decent shape, that's not my problem and shouldn't effect me when I want more to drink. In the case of children, where are their parents telling them that is way too much? I don't see how a child could possibly drink even half of one of those giant ones.
