Minority Groups to Fight NYC Soda Ban

Thursday, January 24, 2013 - 11:30pm

The NAACP and the Hispanic Federation are fighting New York City's ban on large sugary drinks.

They say it's unfair to small, minority-owned businesses.

The groups claim larger competitors, like 7-Eleven and grocery stores, would get a pass because they are regulated by New York state, not the city -- and are exempted from the law.

The ban is due to go into effect in March.
