Hi everyone here. I'm sorry that my first posting as a newbie is to start a new thread. But when I performed a search for this subject, I didn't find anything pertaining to it. Anyway, on another forum we were discussing this article on survivalism, Energy fears looming, new survivalists prepare (AP) : Yahoo! Green To make a long story short, some members of the forum mentioned that some states have laws against having excess amounts of food stored and if someone did, they can have said "excess" confiscated by the authorities. Does anyone know which states have such laws? The only one I have been able to find that does is Hawaii.:feedback: Again thanks and sorry for this being my first posting.
