    Looks like it was, it was flagged, anything to make a buck is this society, or what is left to be a buck, now that the dollar value has gone down and is depleting rapidly.

    It depends. For it would be legal he would have to have it registered with the EPA. My guess is that he was selling some kind of salt-water solution.

    I doubt that he went through all the regulatory hoops if he was selling on CG.

    Yep pretty cheap to be selling for $ 2.00 and it would cost him a $ 0.42 stamp to mail you his recipe. But I believe he can legally sell you the recipe because of Freedom of speech, What you do with that recipe is on you.

    He claims everything needed is all ready in your Kitchen. Well the tree hugger should know this recipe of salt, vinegar and maybe some baking soda. Of course most home garages have all kinds of weed killer like paint thinner and antifreeze. Who knows this fool could have copied his recipe off of a tree hugger garden site and in fact it might be legal under the Organic Crap law.

    The post was flagged what I tried to view it, I assumed he was selling a finished product.

    I agree, the recipe may not be illegal. My next question is, will it be cost effective? Viniger and Salt are more expensive then diluted round-up.

    Ahh...but I just said I would sell vinegar. You can choose to place it on your salad or your unwanted vegetation.

    this brings up such an interesting topic (for me at least)

    Was in COSTCO the other day. They just got in the Scott Weed N' Feeds and their broadleaf weed killer. Price was like 52 bucks. However, it was two isles over from the open refridgerator units and man you could smell it. How the hell is this legal?
