Maryland moving to ban the "Release Of Balloons"

The senate in Maryland would criminalize the intentional release of helium balloons. This is ostensibly being done to reduce plastic waste in the oceans and protect marine life. If the House also passes it and Larry Hogan signs off, perpetrators of balloon releases could be facing a stiff fine. 

A bill that would ban balloon releases statewide has passed in the Maryland Senate.

SB 28 would prohibit balloon releases in the state except for those used for scientific or government purposes. People who “knowingly and intentionally” organize or take part in balloon releases would face a penalty of up to $250.


Typical of Democrats wanting to ban things they do not like and the Democrats are not Totalitarians that is laughable.

If the Democrats want to ban the release of balloons then why not have balloon skeet shoots.

Are you serious? I hope you are not, but the government in both Parties, needs to stop banning things.

Have monkeys release them, so they have no actual human perpetrator of a crime.
