The disposable plastic bag industry has spent a ton of money to derail the California ban on their products. No one wants to see people lose jobs, but there are some industries that cannot in good conscience be defended, and this is one of them.

One way or the other, disposable plastic bags are a lost cause.
Plastic bag manufacturers and other opponents of a California law phasing out plastic bags gathered enough valid voter signatures to qualify a referendum on the law, the secretary of state’s office said Tuesday.
