Plastic Bag Ban in Surburban Chinatown

Recently I saw an older Chinese Man with a walker with some groceries on top of it exiting a market. Hi groceries dropped. He did not want to pay the 10 extra cents for a paper bag.
I have mixed feelings on the bag ban in the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles (which includes Rowland Heights, where I live).  I don't understand the justification for the extra 10 cent charge for paper bags (which do decompose).  The ban on plastic Bags I can understand, sort of (we use ours for garbage can liners).  And yes, I understand the fact that plastic bags don't break down quickly.  And that they can choke marine animals. May be now if we don't get enough plastic bags when we shop for groceries (stores less than a mile from us don't have this ban), we will need to buy the liners for our garbage cans.
