  1. To bad Fleecebag doesn’t have a block the entire state button like they do Alaska and Hawaii. We spend more time dealing with the demands of those residents than we do the other 47 states. And no they don’t buy anymore things than the rest of America.

  2. California can take a flying leap. My business is not located in that state, and states do not have the right to regulate interstate commerce. I will ignore this mandate

  3. If Californians are so gosh darn worried about every cootie known to man (and alien) touching their soil, air and tempestuous tummies they should just place an hermetically sealed bio-dome over the whole state and not let nothing or nobody enter.

    Seriously, shouldn’t Californians be a bit more concerned with what is entering their beautiful state via Asian cargo containers and south of the border drug traffickers than the used books, vintage collectibles and consumer products available in most every grocery store across the country being sold on internet sites?

  4. As a seller from California, I don’t know how I’m supposed to know if a 30-year old action figure has “chemicals and/or substances” which are encompassed by Prop 65.

  5. Prop65 only applies to businesses with MORE THAN 10 EMPLOYEES. That probably eliminates 99% of eBay sellers from an obligation to list.

  6. Californians have always placed themselves on a pedestal and now eBay sellers can thank them for another useless box added to the item specifics whenever one goes to list an item.

    I agree with “Abigail28” – we have many tens of billions of dollars of Asian counterfeit goods entering this country every year through California from a country (China) that pretty much doesn’t care or regulate anything going into their goods. Goods that are loaded with poisons, toxins, chemicals and God knows what else. We have 95% pure Super Meth, heroin, cocaine, etc. flooding in from Mexico through California’s southern border and creating millions of addicts and spurring crime throughout America.

    Yet, effective today (8/30) California will require certain sellers to display a Proposition 65 warning on online retail sites if products contain chemicals and/or substances that may impact the health of California buyers. Simply marvelous!

    How about California getting their own act together before imposing their will on the rest of America!

    By the way, they say the recent California wild fires have adversely affected air quality all the way to the East coast. What are California’s plans to financially reimburse the rest of the country for the negative health related effects of their toxic smoke?
