    I did not realize that the AG was such a skilled analytical chemist. icon_eek.gif
    As someone who has actually done it for over 30 years, I can't help wondering exactly what miraculous techniques were used here...

    I'm guessing that some Tard lawyers are engaging in the same sort of Bro-science that gets excreted on BB.com. Plus a whole lot of showboating and a bit of extortion. icon_rolleyes.gif

    As I expected, they got some kid to run pills through a commercial DNA barcoding gadget.

    In short, the AG did the wrong tests, lied about it, and is probably too stupid to even know it. The retailers surely won't know anything about it and will pay whatever it takes to make the thing go away. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Contact the NY Times and sell yourself as an expert and explain it to them. If there are lawsuits become an expert witness; they'll pay for your flights, hotel, etc. It's good money from what I hear.

    Nah. NYT doesn't care about stuff like that, as long as the headlines are good.
    I've spent enough time defending my clients from Tards at the FTC. Which is kind of hard, since they get to be plaintiff, prosecutor, judge, and jury.

    Sounds like a Republican who loves to see business rip off their clients.

    Is there any other kind of Republican?
