The city of Glendale is imposing a ban on artificial grass. Notices are going out to homeowners whose front yards are covered in turf.
Geneva Dotson says she was forced to pay crews $3,000 to rip up her brand new front yard after receiving a notice from city hall.
City officials say the concern is related to the plastic and chemicals used in the artificial turf.
When asked why the fake grass would continue to be allowed in backyards, officials had no answer.
City officials say they plan to press criminal charges against those who do not comply.
A mind that can criminalize front yard turf but not backyard turf is a mind that can sell guns to Mexican cartels.
