    It seems that what Herb Thyme Farms did is fraud, plain and simple and fraud should be prosecuted with the full force of the law. Fraudsters should not be hiding behind some kind of nebulous "federal protection/preemption". However this will be appealed to the supreme court and Scalia and his hangers on may reverse this judgment, as they care much more about the rights of corporations, however fraudulent they are, than the rights and well being of people.
