NEW YORK - Mayor Michael Bloomberg took to national television Sunday to discuss at-length the upcoming ban on large sugary drinks.

The mayor appeared on Face the Nation, saying that the new law is not a ban, but a portion control to help New Yorkers live longer, healthier lives.

The controversial ban on selling drinks larger than 16 ounces will take effect tomorrow, but violators will get a three-month grace period before the city starts doling out $200 fines. Convenience stores and supermarkets are exempt.
