It's expected to raise a 20-oz by about 10% (a 20 oz coke here is 1.30 ish right now) and goes into affect on Jan 1.
I'm just like wow.
First, it's just for full sugar cokes, diet cokes are exempt. Second, caffiene is addictive and stuff, if adding a finder's fee doesn't keep people from getting drugs, I doubt a 10% increase is going to stop people from getting cokes. It's just going to make people get more coke when they go out of town and bring it back with them, hoarders style, like they do with cigarettes and stuff. Is a 10% increase even enough to offset health problems created from consuming excess sugar? Whose business anyway that someone drinks a coke?
I don't know a lot about Berkeley, but I was under the impression it was one of those weird hippy towns where no one drank coke anyway?
How do y'all feel about this?
