Apis, considering that you are from BC, you probably don't hear much about the crazy laws that are being legislated in NJ.  Since I am in NY, I hear quite a bit about what goes on there.  So, none of this surprises me.  Just an example of their craziness is their gun law.  If you are not a licensed NJ concealed carry resident and you get pulled over and your vehicle is searched, you better pray you did not leave any ammo in your car from a day at the range.  The fine is a $1,000 per bullet and possible jail time.

I have been following this legislation, and this is an update to the previously story posted on this site. just didn't post it at the first story post.
I can relate as we ended up with the bylaws in Vernon changed because of one out of town beekeeper bringing hives into the valley to winter.
