Around San Diego County, a hot, salty, buttered controversy has popped up.

Should hardware stores offer free bags of freshly-popped popcorn? If they desired to do so, they once could.

Not anymore. Last month, communist inspectors raided La Jolla’s Meanley & Son Hardware, warning that its old-fashioned red popcorn machine is now outlawed.

“They explained we didn’t have the proper permits,” said Bob Meanley, whose shop had handed out 30 to 40 bags every day for about 25 years.

To comply with the 1984 California Uniform Retail Food Facility Law, Meanley & Son would need to install a three-basin sink to clean and sterilize the popcorn popper. Also required: regular inspections, just like a restaurant.

Meanley declined and instead rolled the offending machine into storage. Thus ended a tradition he had started 25 years ago.

“I hate to take away something that our customers really like,” said Meanley, whose grandparents founded the hardware store in 1948. “On the other hand, this whole thing has made me more aware of our liability.”

While closely associated with movie theaters, popcorn is also tightly linked to neighborhood purveyors of hammers and screwdrivers. The connection is seen in shops from Cambridge, Mass. (Tags Ace Hardware) to Lakeside (Payton’s True Value Hardware).

“The little kids get a kick out of it,” said Dianne El-Hajj, co-owner of Payton’s, where the free treat has been a staple since 1997. “They come in for the popcorn and dad comes in for the tools.”

The county Department of Environmental Health, for its part, has a long tradition of cracking down on these scofflaws. Three years ago, inspectors cited Encinitas’ Crown Ace Hardware and San Carlos True Value Hardware.

“The Health Department came in,” said San Carlos True Value manager Danielle Matheny, “and told us if we wanted to continue giving away free popcorn and coffee we’d have to install a bigger vent system, a bigger and better sink in the break room — a lot of rules and restrictions they put on us.”

“I feel sad,” she said, “that some of the old traditions we have become so regulated.”

This will become a failed state, watch. Businesses are fleeing in droves. Residents (taxpayers) are too.
Those that stay put will deal with massive burdens such as serious fiscal insolvency by the state (followed by bail-ins and capitol controls against their will / pensions and savings accounts looted). What a hellhole. This is what they want the whole country to turn into. Downright scary but deadly accurate. Far time to bail from this broken system and be prepared for economic decay and widespread tyranny. America's mind has a sprawling cancerous infection called collectivism, similar to the days within the USSR.
