If they really wanted to save the environment why don't they find the money to bring school busing back for the state California instead of thousands and thousands of parents driving two to four times a day to take kids back and forth? Save the environment from car pollution and the parents pocket book on gas!

Despite cheryl's dire prediction, we will not be imprisoning anyone for disobeying bag laws. Sounds like someone's been watching too much Fox "News" or listening to Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh or someone equally as idiotic.

Bag pressure can be relieved by placing the offending bag inside another bag (recyclable of course). Place the bagged bag on a flat surface like a sturdy table. Strike repeatedly with a rubber mallet or steel hammer until the pressure is relieved.

Boxes of single-use tea bags are located in the coffee and tea aisle. No-use and useless Tea Bags can be found at Republican conventions, evangelical churches, and similar offensive locations where idiots gather.

The banning of single use paper bags from being given out for free is a definitely a step in the right direction. Plastic bags are given out too freely now, with cashiers putting every thing in a bag, even single items like an apple or a banana. Given that it is assumed that most people use over 130 bags each year, it is essential that everyone starts making changes to be more environmentally conscious. The majority of the plastic bags used are not even recycled and instead sent to landfills, or worse, they wind up on beaches, roads, and sidewalks. Not to mention the thousands of blastic bags flouting in the ocean and consequentially effecting marine life.
This new law is going is the first step in making California and plastic-bag-free state.
Why doesn't California import Michael Bloomberg, since everyone seems to have turned stupid.

California has always been full of fruits and nuts, but lately they have gotten a whole lot nuttier.
Maybe Sacramento is awaiting the arrival Michael Bloomberg so they want to give him something to sink his teeth into.

Dumb Georgia crackers should be disposed of in the same bins as tea bags. Remember to wash hands thoroughly after disposal of such toxic waste.

Plastic bags are not the problem. Its the paper cups, flyers and newsprint I see all over the roads. I have yet to see one plastic bag in the street.

The grocery eaters of ill-will allowed the corrupt California political ruling class to trick them into accepting the tax and control related demonization of the many millions California voters who enjoy the simple worker **("middle")** class pleasure of an occasional tobacco product. Now, radical anti-tobacco users of ill will rant and rave that they are being forced to either pay $$$ Big Grocers $$$ to purchase heavily taxed disease spreading "reusable" grocery bags, or otherwise, pay the Lowenthal harassment tax to purchase tree killing paper bags under penalty of revolutionary LAW! Now that the ox of the radical food eaters of ill-will is being gored, why should we normals feel sorry for them?
