California’s policies and legislation would be borderline hilarious if they weren’t so irascibly dangerous for the country, with the recently proposed anti-candy policy being one of the most hilarious of all.
After all, California would be the state in which a huge percentage of felonies are converted into misdemeanors, several of which culminate into a gentle slap on the wrist at best.
This is the state wherein illegals are welcome and transgender mobs rule, which means it is also the state in which conservative speakers literally take their lives in their own hands by daring to discuss the value of free speech at Beijing-funded universities.
Speaking of illegals, California also made dubious headlines when teachers gave illegals an in-person education during COVID while multiple other students remained trapped at home with so-called “online education.”
Moreover, this is also the state that has all but openly condoned public drug abuse by the willing homeless, several of whom leave needles scattered about the exorbitantly expensive cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Yet, while California laws are openly pro-crime, pro-illegal, and effectively pro-China, it appears that Governor Newsom feels he needs to act extra strict in other regards.
Such as banning all gas-powered cars by 2035, as well as making a number of other moves designed to suffocate truckers out of a living.
Hilariously, a day after that announcement, the state experienced massive brownouts, revealing the degree to which Newsom’s little 2035 policy is not only authoritarian, but pathetically unenforceable given the weak infrastructure of his state in this regard.
Nonetheless, one would think that a state with such irascibly irresponsible legislation with regards to drug abuse could care less what substances people consume.
Alas, one would be assuming incorrectly, as it has become crystal clear that the state is now intent on attacking candy of all substances.
Indeed, the food and beverage industry is currently combatting a bill that’s making the rounds in the California state legislature, which is likely to have an enormously disruptive impact on business.
Specifically, the bill aims to ban any and all food products that contain red dye 3, potassium bromate, propylparaben, titanium dioxide, and brominated vegetable oil, due to their alleged negative impact on human health.
Someone should inform the clueless lawmakers that shooting up narcotics, in particular those laced with Beijing-originated fentanyl, is also bad for human health, though lawmakers appear disturbingly less concerned about that.
On top of the ludicrous nature of the bill, relative to the state’s other pro-drug policies, the proposed law also allows for businesses to be subjected to huge fines if they dare to sell such “dangerous” substances.
Specifically, if businesses are busted selling any products with so-called “red dye 3” and others, they are subject to fines of $5,000 for an initial offense, followed by $10,000 fines for each subsequent offense thereafter.
Perhaps most hilariously of all, in a state where “Defund Police” sentiment remains supreme, the bill allows for taxpayer fund to be diverted to so-called “candy cops,” as stated by one industry executive in remarks to Fox News Digital.
“They are literally creating candy cops in California. If the whole thing wasn’t so serious it would be hilarious … This is not well thought out, and the consequences for business are real and widespread,” the executive warned.
California dreaming …
