biyu some friends of mine are naturopaths and I learned from them that the American Medical Association is pressuring the NC State Legislature to prohibit purchase of herbal products over the counter without a prescription. They also want to force manufacturers of herbal products to out on the label that herbs have no proven medicinal values, and all benefits listed have to be equivocated with terms like "alleged" or "reputed".

I don't think that anyone is going to bother you with your growing herbs as long as they are not the illegal kind. Now a field of maryjane might be a different story!
