    A federal appeals court struck down a Michigan law that forces beverage companies to put a special identifying mark on returnable cans and bottles sold in the state.

    The court ruled Thursday that Michigan is illegally affecting interstate commerce by dictating where cans and bottles can be distributed.

    That's because the law says containers with a special Michigan mark can be sold only in Michigan and states that also require deposits. Failure to comply is a crime.


    Yeaaah!  Michigan, being only 1 of 10 Liberal states to have bottle deposits that's plagued with fraud, and stifling business, is now a deemed illegal, ripe for the pickings, lawyer fee boondoggle too.  But Scales, we need the bottle deposits tax to keep the Great Lakes clean.  Ya, right.  Go tell that EcoTerrorist crap to Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, who don't have bottle deposits.  It's ridiculous to keep revisiting this container deposit Law (beer, soft drinks, wine coolers) when juice pouches have exemptions, and everyone with their bazillions of 20 oz. water bottles never ever were included in the 10¢ shakedown.  Get with the times, Lansing.  The human chattel have been conditioned into recycling at their dwellings.  They pay for recycling bins with their rubbish pickup in their property taxes.  Repeal this outdated law, throw the damn beverage containers in recycling bins, and get the Hell out of businesses way.

    OR, I'm calling Newman.

    with the law personally.

    But there are consequences like food stamp fraud, and the costs associated as you point out, etc.

    I remember bottles and cans on the side of the road however.
