VENTSday: Plastic Bag Bans + Anti-Smoking Campaigns

Jan 29, 2014

California considers a statewide ban on plastic grocery bags, and Oregon gets a lousy grade for its anti-smoking efforts. 


Those news items provide the basis for this week's VENTSday segment. 

We do not schedule guests for Wednesday at 8:30, because that's the time for VENTSday, your chance to vent (politely, please) on a pair of topics in the news. 

We bring the topics, you bring the opinions. 

It's VENTSday on The Jefferson Exchange, and you participate by calling 1-800-838-3760 or 541-552-6782 or emailing

This week's topics again:

  • Single-use plastic bags at the checkout: keep or ditch?
  • What else should we do to discourage smoking, or have we done enough?
