Bye, Bye Big Gulp: California Tries To Ban Cups That Hold More Than 16 Fluid Ounces

A new bill would ban retailers from selling or giving away cups with removable lids that can hold more than 16 fluid ounces. Many times these cups are used for fountain soda or frozen sugary drinks. Stores caught selling the big cups would be fined $200 for the first violation, $500 for the second violation, and $1,000 for each subsequent violation.
