Regarding your article on New York City's ban on jumbo sugary drinks, it's good that the government is pushing for healthier choices, but will this really be in consumers' best interest? ("Md. leaders watching New York's soda ban," June 1).
In this economy, we must ask whether people can afford a tax hike on the sugary beverages that serve as a cheap alternative to low-income families. We will have to wait and see how the tax in NYC goes before we make a decision here.
