Could D.C. Be Next for Big Soda Ban?

At a Democratic debate for the at-large council seat Thursday evening, four of the seven candidates hoping to represent the city said they would support enacting a ban on large sodas, similar to the ban enacted by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg last year. Michael Brown, the former independent at-large councilmember was among the contingent who would favor a soda ban. Others include former Washington City Paper writer Elissa Silverman, former Clinton Administration appointee Matthew Frumin, and marijuana legalization advocate Paul Zukerberg. (Huffington Post)
