What happened about that Bag Ban or Bag Tax thing? So why did they even bother?

If the idea of making people pay a nickel every time they bought a plastic bag to put their groceries in or use a one or two dollar cloth sack was such a good one, then why did they suddenly stop doing this and reverting back to the old way of doing things? Do people still think you can't recycle those plastic bags because they get tangled up in the gears at the recycle sites? GMAB!

Must've been a Texas thing, because it was never a thing here

WalMart in Canada was going to start doing it last month, as far as I know they still are,...

That is something isn't it? Some states attempted doing this and others didn't. Hmm.

I was wondering what happened also maybe they stopped doing it because too many people were complaining and didn't want to spend a nickle for every plastic bag they needed or they brought their own.

Oh everyone was angry about this, but there was another problem, People would walk in with a few cloth bags of their own and they would fill them up with stuff and then walk out without paying. Extreme product shrinkage was one of the issues retailers had.
