drinks tax?

Weight Watchers Magazine (Australia) - - Nutrition -

The Grat­tan In­sti­tute has pro­posed a tax on sug­ary drinks to ad­dress obe­sity rates. The tax of 40 cents per 100g of sugar would raise the price of a 2L bot­tle of soft drink by about 80 cents. Could this help curb our con­sump­tion of sug­ary soft drinks, which has in­creased by 30 per cent in the past 10 years?
