No, it isn't a waste of government! And it should be a concern of anyone who wants to get what they pay for. Counterfeit products, regardless of whether they are food, drugs, jewelry, etc. cost the distributors of legitimate products billions of dollars every year. Also, many counterfeit goods are manufactured and sold by enemies of our country. For example, in NY most counterfeit cigarettes are found in stores owned by Arab scum!
Also, counterfeit food products made in Asia have made people here sick. Counterfeit medications made overseas have killed people.

If you buy maple syrup off the side of the road from a truck driver you met on the internet and it's a "sweet" deal, you might want to use some common sense and and wonder if it's real or stolen.

If you buy things from "shady" people under "shady" circumstances you have only yourself to blame for getting ripped off. Con artists wouldn't exist if some people weren't so easily duped.

Wrong, this is not about counterfeit products it is about maple syrup, something you can immediately taste a difference in. If your stupid enough to think that there is someone out there trying to give you something for nothing you deserve cane sugar on your pancakes.

I had to laugh the other day. I went to the grocery store for my usual Sunday morning grocery shopping. Going down the breakfast isel i was looking at the syrups. There was one by log cabin. It said pure maple syrup.

So I looked at the back. There was so much shit in it. So then I grabbed the bottle of Cary's Maple Syrup. It said made form: 100% Canadian Maple Syrup.

So guess which one I picked up?
