Re: [APD] massachusetts laws

Be careful. In states where they monitor plants, don't mark the shipments 
"Aquatic Plants" etc. (they don't really handle any differently in any 
case). I did this in the past. Mailings to California get intercepted 
because invasive plants are banned there as well ... and whoever is in 
charge of that steps into the postal system to check shipments coming in if 
the boxes are so marked. Don't know why Massachusettes has a problem, not 
likely given the climate, that they would have the same problem as 
California, but be careful shipping. Just thought I'd add that.
