A Honey of a Law

In reading a business guide (From Kitchen to Market, if anyone's interested), I was warned by the author not to attempt to sell honey in 12 ounce jars in California - there, it's strictly forbidden to sell honey in jars of that size. You'd better respect the wisdom of the legislature and use the government-approved 8 and 16-ounce jars for all our good.

Kinda reminds me of a write-up by a nice guy, Jeffrey Snyder, on Wisconsin laws regarding margarine and cheese production. Can you say "unnecessary burden?"

I'm really believing that a government without the will and ability to repeal its own laws (take the recent end of the Spanish-American war, for example) isn't any sort of government at all.

Kinda makes you wonder what would happen if you decided to sell 100, 200, 300, etc. gram increments...

It's probably "deceptive" marketing.
