Equal protection right? Not that I condone the mushrooms, it just seems something is wrong when you get put in jail here for something that is ok just 7-8 hours away.

And dig this. They sold over a million dollars on day one which pumped $290,000 in taxes in the state coffers. I think once the lawmakers see this as a cash cow they will be falling all over themselves to get to tapping the stream.
