TEMECULA (CBSLA.com) — The plastic bag ban is in full effect in California. But many shoppers are not happy about having to pay for Prop. 67, which requires all stores to charge at least 10 cents for each paper or plastic bag.
One shopper was seen loading her grocery items one by one into the trunk of her SUV outside a Vons in Temecula Wednesday night because she refused to pay 10 cents for a grocery bag.
Prop. 67 went into effect immediately after being approved by 52 percent of statewide voters on Nov. 8.
“Because they are just ripoff. I don’t want to pay for a plastic bag,” one man declared.
“Ten cents a little too much for me,” another man said.
Some stores are charging 10 cents for a paper bag, 15 cents for a reusable plastic bag.
