Here's what I don't understain.

"The ban would apply only to sweetened drinks over 16 ounces that contain more than 25 calories per 8 ounces. (A 12-ounce can of Coke has about 140 calories. Plastic bottles of Coke and other <span class="yshortcuts cs4-visible">soft drinks</span> often contain 20 ounces.)

It would not affect diet soda, any drink that's at least 70 percent juice, or one that is at least half milk or milk substitute. Nor would it apply to drinks sold in many supermarkets or convenience stores. Businesses would face fines of $200 per failed inspection."

But don't most places have soda fountain style that you get yourself?  I pretty much only drink diet soda when I drink soda, but is someone going to follow me around and make sure I don't fill up with regular coke?  Weird.
