LA City Council considers outlawing silly string

Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Silly string's days may be numbered in Los Angeles.

The City Council is set to consider an ordinance today that would ban the substance from use in public places.

One councilman says banning silly string is needed to clean up the streets of Hollywood and other areas where it is often used during Halloween and New Year's parties. He says the aerosol-powered spray string can clog sewers.

Many others say the council is wasting time by discussing such a seemingly trivial issue.

The ingredients of silly string are kept secret by manufacturers, but some kinds contain a small amount of alcohol and plasticizers.
