Ok let me get this right, they wont give you plastic bags in stores to put the stuff you bought in it but they will sell you a paper bag for 10 cents except if your a lazy welfare person on food stamps then they will not charge you the bag. Meaning you probably will now be seeing thrown paper bags on street because the majority of welfare people are the one whos litter because they dont care and probably half of LA gets food Stamps. Its funny how they let people think they are involved by letting them vote but in reality its the citys , the countys the states or the Goverment who can make a law whenever they want without asking for a vote on it.

This plastic bag ban is seriously BS!!!
I am totally against these plastic bag bans because I represent a bag manufacturer that has a SAFE biodegradable additive solution called D2W, which is added to the plastic when the bags are being manufactured, over a few months the bags biodegrade to a SAFE DUST, all it needs is OXYGEN! The other cities that have passed these bans are so foolish and have been brain washed by listening to environmentalists, that only show one-sided data and donít offer any real solutions such as my biodegradable additive. The environmentalists are always complaining on the one-time use of these regular plastic bags, but if you took a poll, I guarantee that most people reuse these plastic bags in garbage baskets or to pick up dog poo. It blows my mind when government passes these type of laws during a POOR ECONOMY to hurt businesses. Unemployment is at an all-time high and this ban would only add to it. Also what about the thousands of dollars in sales tax that is generated from the plastic bag purchases by all of the large grocery stores, the city councilmen donít even realize they are hurting their own budgets, they are nuts! If any type of law should be passed on these bags, make the grocery stores only buy plastic bags that are biodegradable, that solves the problem!

You are right. In more technologically advanced nations there are thousands of companies that produce components that allow the manufacture of easily biodegradable Lowenthal harassment tax-free plastic grocery bags. Our finny friends love eating those corn-based grocery bags and they thrive by having access to a healthy corn-based diet.
The problem is that, since the revolution, the revolutionaries who now control expensive taxpayer funded academia used Big Government collected, taxpayer funded, loot as political pay-offs to politically powerful Big Teachers. Those Big Teachers then acted to "dumb down" our children to the lowest common denominator in accordance with the latest trendy social theory that has been cooked up by academia. The result is that the nation no longer has enough qualified trained chemical engineers to take advantage of modern grocery bag technology.
Here is one source that supplies the components that are needed to produce environmentally friendly grocery bags. There are thousands others:
