I think it is overall a good idea, the pros out do the cons. Plastic bags are a nuisance and are deadly to animals in the ocean, many who ingest it and it gets stuck in their stomachs and either quickly or over time kills them.
Ideally humans would not be stupid a$%holes who liter garbage and throw it in a trash cans, but we are not as considerate as we would like.

This law should be adopted in other states as well.

I keep four of my own cloth bags in the trunk of my car, so I don't have that problem of forgetting when I go to the grocery store.
As soon as I empty them , they go right back in the trunk.
Once a month, I put them in the washing machine and they are just as good as new.
It's a good habit to get into, rather than spend money for those thicker plastic bags at the market.

Bob.

This is exactly what my daughter does, & she started it as a college student 10 years ago, I'm proud of her for doing that. I reuse my plastic & paper bags; sometimes I find grocery receipts from years ago! I will switch to cloth pretty soon. It's not so hard & it's a good thing in the long run. As myself & others said, they have done this in Europe for years.

sometimes I see people bringing their own bag and it almost makes them look like they are shoplifting, because they bag it before paying for it, unless they use a basket or shopping cart before bagging it.

The cities that have enacted a bag ban have seen an increase in shoplifting.

Has California's plastic bag ban backfired?

Maybe California should also ban alcohol to stop drunk driving. Then let's ban bacon since the high fat content contributes to heart disease. Of course lets ban doughnuts too-too high in fat and sugar! How much government interference and control will the stupid morons in California tolerate?

Hopefully this idiotic law will be repealed by the voters in 2016!

Change messes with people. I do this exactly and it really isn't a difficult process at all.

These really are not the same as banning plastic bags.
