California lawmakers have approved a measure that would make the state the first to impose a statewide ban on single-use plastic bags.
SB270 cleared the Senate on a 22-15 vote Friday and sent to Gov. Jerry Brown. It was approved by the Assembly a day earlier.
Senators who had previously opposed the bill, including incoming Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, a Los Angeles Democrat, this time supported the measure after protections were added for plastic bag manufacturers.
The bill by Democratic Sen. Alex Padilla of Los Angeles would prohibit single-use plastic bags at grocery stores and large pharmacies in 2015 and at convenience stores in 2016.
It includes $2 million in loans to help manufacturers shift to producing reusable bags and lets grocers charge 10 cents each for paper and reusable bags.

It was the elite who stimulated a population explosion in the first place through the ‘discovery’ of fossil fuel which the Chinese had been using for thousands of years. They see themselves as a different species. They won’t stop until the prophecies are full filled.
Renounce your citizenship slavery; be a conscientious objector.
No Inflation Friday: 422% increase in price to leave the Land of the Free

In fact, renouncing US citizenship was free of charge until a couple of years ago. Then, overnight, the State Departmente imposed a $450 fee.

It’s curious that a government which denies inflation even exists would complain about the consequences of it. -Simon Black

This was bound to happen, either an arrest by the people or by the cabal.. We need to ensure that we act in truth, integrity, responsibility, accountability and transparency at all times.
Trick or treat? Without prejudice, every corporation soda goes towards the extermination of the people or the planet. On a fractional reserve banking system, your $1 soda tax invoice is sold to your reserve bank for $10 to stock markets = $100 to world bank $1000.00. Every soda can fund at least a small drone .
Ask yourself this: “How many drones are the people funding daily on this planet.?”
Know this: This madness will only stop if you stop it: Be a conscientious objector, drinking soda is guaranteed to kill.
In a risky bid to jolt sagging sales, Coca-Cola Co. is paying $2.15 billion to acquire a 16.7% stake in energy-drink maker Monster Beverage Corp. as part of an asset swap.
Coke badly needs some big new ideas. Global soda sales growth is slowing for a third straight year and the company missed its overall targets last year as a result. Diet Coke is falling off a cliff.
Energy drink sales, by contrast, have been a bright spot in the beverage market, though sales have been slowing after several years of double-digit growth. Global energy-drink sales increased just 6.8% last year in dollar terms, down from 11% in 2012 and 20% in 2011, according to Euromonitor. The caffeine-fueled category also faces rising regulatory scrutiny in the U.S. and abroad.
Monster is the country’s No. 2 energy-drink maker, second only to the maker of Red Bull. As one of…
