Plastic Bag Ban: How To Get People To Shop Outside Your City’s Zip Code
In case you were wondering why Gregg shops at the Venice supermarket on the big boulevard rather than the Santa Monica one — the Santa Monica one charges 10 cents a bag, because the government makes them do it.
Being charged for bags pisses Gregg off. He could go to either store, and used to go to the Santa Monica one, but now goes to the Venice one instead, where they still give out bags because Venice is in LA County — the home to a whole lot of other dipshitted laws.
The news that spurred this blog post: Another OC city is considering a plastic bag ban.
Geniuses! Just the economy to make it a little harder on the businesses that pay the taxes that keep your city’s lights on and the cop cars gassed up.
