This law seems very vague, albeit is is understandable - to me- that Wyoming want to control weed seeds and curtail any grain seeds, particularly those which are certifiable (have certain characteristics or trademark), along with any fraud that could be perpetrated by anyone (individual, seed seller/distributor, or corporation - albeit the latter not being provided here). However, what is the criteria by which anyone determines whether or not seed is certifiable (11-12-120 ), and does an individual who wants certification induce a seller to break the law to provide that certification? Moreover, (11-12-101) exempts a person who does not intend to sell his seed or plant it: the point there is? However, it all comes down to the victim's perception of what was sold to him/her in terms of quality and whether or not under Wyoming law the seed law has been violated.
Summary:The Vermont seed law only regulates seed that is "sold" in the state. Unfortunately, the statute does not elaborate on the definition of "sold." As seen in the seed laws of other states, this term can include "exchanges" where no money changes hands. It is unclear how Vermont defines the word "sold." The statute should clarify what exactly "sold" means, and exempt seed libraries if they do in fact come under the law's scope.
Summary:The Massachussetts seed law regulates seeds that are "sold" in the state. However, the statute does not clearly define the words "sold" or "sell." From seed laws of other states, these terms can include "exchanges" where no money changes hands. The statute should clarify what exactly "sold" means and exempt seed libraries if they do in fact come under the law's scope
