Oh? You think that is dumb? How about the upfront mattress disposal fee that the California political ruling class is thinking of imposing on increasingly impoverished overtaxed Californians?
Environmentally friendly easily disposable grocery bag technology has been known in more inventive nations for many years. The fish love them, growing fat and sassy from eating corn based grocery bags. Such grocery bags also provide excellent mulch that can be used by backyard gardeners. The problem with requiring fat-cat Big Grocers to use them is that doing so would cut into the scam their pals - the political ruling class *("Liberals")*- is running.
As you may be aware, environmentally harmful disease spreading reusable grocery bags are heavily taxed in California. In addition, Lowenthal harassment taxes are imposed on the minority of overtaxed Long Beachers who not use expensive taxpayer provided food stamps.

I think a law is unnecessary here. This could have been done other ways, or simply evolving over time. This is gonna end up as another out-of control government ploy who will affect the poor only. Another dictum which probably has been lobbied by somebody

By letting it go, all gets done. As always, doing nothing ( from a politician) is the best thing to do.

Join us in the teapotty xxx teaparty and you can get all the bags you can handle. they wont have nothing in them but that is the fault of everybody else as we will have stopped everything we dont understand in the country once we run the govmint into a full stop and turn it over to the kooch bros. Once we have stopped everything we dont understand, which amounts to everything, we can begin the deportaions and the sell outs. Yay, hooray, we are out of everything, again, to-day. No brains no headaches, we is true believers and we is right uptight and not too bright, works for fish, dont it.

Actually, activist Government licensed NGO organizations are used as a means to provide employment opportunities for otherwise unemployable university indoctrinated "Liberals". NAZI orientated anti-grocery shopper - pro-BIG FOOD political donor NGOs are fully supported with hard earned taxpayer money.

Obama *(BIG)* supports whatever his underlings cook up - especially by by wealthy overpaid and under-worked taxpayer supported Government university "professors". Let's deal first with that problem, then we can deal with their anti-grocery NAZI crowd followers.

I agree, we have the most over educated university students that are not employable. We have art majors and people with worthless science degrees working at Starbucks that complain that the taxpayer should pay for their student loans.

I'm for this bill. People are ridiculous in how they want a bag for a single item. Or a double bag for 4 cans of food. It is so wasteful. And the cost of the bags is sure to add up for retailers... If you people want to whine THAT much about the big bad government 'stealing' your money, then just get reusable bags! That's the whole point of the Eco-friendly argument. You're just being stubborn and lazy.

Unless we want to become part of the fossil record several thousand years from now like many species that preceded us we had better start figuring out how we are going to survive what comes next.

Food, shelter, and everything else that we need for our existence will ultimately come from different sources as many plants and animals that we currently rely on will disappear and many places that we lived in will become unlivable.

That is just how it is.

Another dumb Liberal idea by the dumbest liberal state in the union. The bags aren't the problem, the dumb people that carelessly use them are. I return every single use plastic bag I use to the supermarket I shop at. It's called responsibility. This fricking state is becoming with all it's rules, and regulations, absolutely the least free state in the country.

I can't wait to get out of here, and I'm a native.

California, you can have it!
