I think we have much bigger things for the legislature to handle.

Having said that, there will be joints that start selling 8/10 of a pound advertised as a pound, because it boosts profits by 20%

Instead of making it easier for the craptastic chains to operate... lets legalize marijuana. Everyone wins. Then, we wont care about the scale, just glad to get that tasty brisket and banana pie. Seriously though, Im all for having a joint on the weekend and adding billions to our states economy while simultaneously placing less resources on prisoners and freeing up LEO for more important crimes.

Simple for me, if I pay for a pound then I expect to receive a pound, don't care what the scale owner has to do to keep it honest. If he can keep his scale right without having to have the state verify it then I'm OK with it. Not sure what a pound of BBQ has to do with marijuana though???

Lol... well we know the democrats and liberals dont care! Also, migraine sufferers and chronic nerve pain. And what about the snack deprived? They eat meals everyday but what of the lost cheezits and doritos? What say you mary jane haters? We need HB 234-3 "the Texanscare about snacks and sodas" act.

In the grand scheme of things no, the state takes a much larger % of my income in the form of fees and taxes and it's riddled with wasteful spending.

I can opt to move down the road to the next BBQ joint if I think one is being shady, but I can't opt to pay my taxes

This seems like a colossal waste of time, but then they are not spending as much time doing other stupid stuff.

To exempt one particular food type is going to lead to problems.

Actually, I like it! Lets just get rid of the health department and weights and measures altogether.

You betcha! Then that gallon of gas that you're supposed to get at the pump will only be a half gallon of gas.

Amen. Wasting time on how to weigh BQ is flippin' absurd. These politicians have forgotten who hired them and apparently they need to figure out that we can also fire them.

If all they've got to do is this kind of BS, take the day off and go home. Matter of fact, don't bother coming back and we'll just try again next session with a fresh slate of 'employees'.

It's gonna cost the customer either way. The occasional skimming or adding the cost of the measurement fees and scales into the cost of your brisket platter.

I'm all for less regulation. Honestly, I like the idea about just selling it by the "chunk" or portions. That's what all other restaurants do. I've never seen a restaurant weigh that 12 oz filet of fish or whatever else. They just tell me what the weight is and as long as I'm satisfied and feel like I got a fair value, I'll be back.

And, why are we stopping at BBQ joints? De-regulate it all. I know my truck holds 30 gallons of gas. If I go to a gas station and it tells me I put in 30, but then my fuel gauge reads 2/3 full, I know I got ripped off.

People need to watch out for themselves and not let themselves get ripped off. We don't need all this regulations. It's ridiculous.

I'm so fed up with standing in at a good BBQ place ! I just hand my money over to the cashier and get busy eating. We need a weight and measurement department, for gas as I feel most convenience store owners are shady as **** !
