West coast madness- couple fined for brown lawn in drought

California can't stop the crazy. A couple that cut back on watering their lawn to conserve water in drought stricken California, may be fined up to $500 for having a brown lawn (external - login to view). If that wasn't bad enough, the State's new drought measures empower cities to fine citizens up to $500 for watering the lawn...
