My wife and I shoot 2 or 3 thousand pin nails a month in our craft business . My new shipment came with this warning " California - use of this product may cause reproductive harm ". Where do they think that I shoot them ?

LOL! Those warnings are based on some component such as lead or some chemical that MAY be a carcinogen. And I stress MAY. It's like putting the warning label on a coffee cup that says "Warning-contents may be hot". Out of control and costly to the manufacturers.

Prop 65 passed back in 1988...reformed/updated in 2016

Do you inform your customers that those pin nails could be hazardous ?


Is it time for your medication or mine?

Mexico was the first to require warnings on food packages

Excess

Sodium
Calories
Sugar

When I see the black octagon, I cannot help but register the point.
But this country is a center for fats, sugars and salty

California thought it was smarter to ban manual battery chargers rather than demand they have non-over-ride timers. They even came up with charts showing how much sulfur would be spared from the air.

Now the big question: Reinventing The Wheel to magically produce 110 gigawatts of new electrical power sans hydroelectric, nuclear, or petroleum.

These are the same breed of folks who went bananas over cancer causing chemicals in broccoli in the 1960s. When and investigation revealed it would require consuming several hundreds of pounds a day for decades to meet their parts per million, the problem dissolved.

I left California years ago as I could see the whacky way the state was heading. I became a South Dakota resident (on paper, was full time RVing then) and didn't look back. That worked well for quite some time before I became an AZ, and now, a TX resident. I haven't the slightest desire to ever return to CA even though I have family there and, admittedly, did enjoy the weather. [emoticon]

I am going to avoid the politiks and stick to facts. California is expensive. Too many places have restrictions on the mere sight of an RV parked anywhere on your property. A friend, now moved to Dallas Tx. had a pusher diesel parked around the rear of a million dollar home 20 years ago. Driving past, a few feet of rear bumper was visible from 100 yards distance. It was a fleeting glance from the email images he sent.
The city and HOA jumped all over him. So he sold the estate and moved to Texas. These snooty cities refer to RV resorts as Trailer Parks.
