Re: [Aroid-l] Shipping plants into Arizona UPDATE

I guess my only question is, "Does AZ intercept U.S. Post Office mail and inspect the packages? I do believe that would be a federal crime and land someone in prison."

How would AZ know if someone shipped tubers to an address in the state? I am not likely to emblazon "LIVE PLANTS" on the outside of the box!

-Ken Mosher (the annoyed libertarian who doesn't really care what AZ wants)

P.S. I bet FTD and 800-FLOWERS are thrilled with AZ

P.P.S. This sounds like it may be illegal. Only the U.S. goverment has the authority to regulate interstate commerce. How does AZ get away with it?

Our ‘respected’ head of the Florida Department of Agriculture just phoned to make a verbal retraction/amendment from a written document. We feel this warrants notification and retraction to aroid-l members for a part of our earlier shipping statements.

Be it known that the State of Arizona requires the phyto-sanitary certificate to accompany ALL interstate and international shipments coming in. Now you should understand why we were so elated with the previous announcement; believing this had been waived. We remain very pleased for CA residents, not with the Arizona regulation. I’m sure the AZ members already know this, it is intended for the rest of us.


Suffice it to say in our words, all AZ residents receiving plant or plant parts shipments could rent a PO Box in an adjoining state for less than the mandatory $50 phyto-sanitary certificate to accompany each shipment arriving from another state <joke>.

"As a matter of constitutional tradition, in the absence of evidence
to the contrary, we presume that governmental regulation of the
content of speech is more likely to interfere with the free exchange
of ideas than to encourage it. The interest in encouraging freedom of
expression in a democratic society outweighs any theoretical but
unproven benefit of censorship."
