I will be composing an email to send out asap.
I NEVER visit this part of the site, and didn't even know this was happening.

Similar things happen with reptiles, attempting to ban species of snakes because they have the "potential to endanger the public or natural resources of the state of washington" I know snakes, and some species they were trying to ban live in the SAHARA DESERT, a far far far cry from SEATTLE climate. Long story short, they didn't know what they were talking about and some parents who saw "Snakes on a plane" too many times freaked out and got the bill in motion. Luckily, it didn't pass.
This thread needs to be Duplicated on the General Planted Tanks and Plants discussion boards for the good of the hobby.
