Check out this link about a local landscaper using roundup. Is this
like this in all states?

Good. We need to see more stories like that. Ignorance is no excuse for breaking the law.

It is not that tough up here in Michigan, but I do wish they where tougher.

I know of a few lawn mowing companies that operate under the table, and apply "weed and feed" to their customers lawns without licenses. I would like to see them stopped.

Funny story.
Why ?
They change the law back in Sep of 2003.
Before then , you could use herbicides if you also did landscape maint.
No license needed .
Not now .
Up here in Sedona , I've turned in a couple of Big places that did their own Maint and weed control and they did nothing .
My motive was for them to hire me for weed control .
So far I've gotton 3 accounts from alerting them about the change in the law .
A total of $875.00 more a month .
And I've hired a salesmen to go out and do it for me.
Things are looking good .

That is a $5,000 fine here for first offense, and $5,000 for each additional offense. If you know of companies that violate, turn them in.

What I mean is I wish the MDA had a roving patrol out to enforce the regulations.

I know that some city's do (West Bloomfield, St. Clair Shores for example).

I did make a call and turn in one company. I don't know what action the MDA took, if any because they are still operating and still "weeding and feeding".
