    I think that will require a challenge in court, dont you?

    Oh, and BTW I do love cheat sheets- but its super difficult to include all the pertinent code with California's restrictions and capture these information nuggets with both brevity and clarity.

    Nice job overall. Shall we make them into business cards?

    I have it in my wallet already. I have read the pertinent sections enough to use it as a guide to keep myself straight when discussing the legality of OC.

    Go ahead and help yourself if you want to go the business card route. I posted it for everyone's use.
