When the state stops trying to control what people buy and provide a product that works exactly like the ones they are trying to stop then we in Idaho will stop selling them.. Get real Washington

I am a happy soap smuggler in Spokane. Ecology listens only to Michael Moore, Al Gore and the Washington Lake Protection Association. When I am shown peer-review proof that phosphates are destructive and shown alternatives to the ban that were considered before the ban was placed I'll then re-think my decision.

Happy Algae season, everyone
