In the wonderful state of California where I was born and raised, the liberals who infect the government want to imprison waiters who do a nefarious deed – hand out straws unsolicited.
Ian Calderon wants restaurateurs to think long and hard before giving you a straw.
Calderon, the Democratic majority leader in California’s lower house, has introduced a bill to stop sit-down restaurants from offering customers straws with their beverages unless they specifically request one. Under Calderon’s law, a waiter who serves a drink with an unrequested straw in it would face up to 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.
“We need to create awareness around the issue of one-time use plastic straws and its detrimental effects on our landfills, waterways, and oceans,” Calderon explained in a press release.
This isn’t just Calderon’s crusade. The California cities of San Luis Obispo and Davis both passed straws-on-request laws last year, and Manhattan Beach maintains a prohibition on all disposable plastics. And up in Seattle, food service businesses won’t be allowed to offer plastic straws or utensils as of July.
Incredible. So you can hand out weed but you can’t hand out a straw! All because they’re are propagandized to believe in global warming. Amazing.
IN this report, they don’t even mention the punishment, I guess they want us to believe that the legislators aren’t insane idiots:
