LA bans plastic bags

California continues to demonstrate that it's ahead of the curve -- make that bleeding edge. As of July 1, 2010 (why so long?), LA -- the second-largest city in the country -- will ban all plastic bags from retail stores. Is this the true makings of a nationwide trend? Anyone want to take bets on how long until major national chains pick up on the idea and actually implement it?
