Reading Eleanor Parkes comment one can see how stupid some of our laws are . On the one hand she says she needs a permit and on the other milkweed is considered noxious. Now are the “powers that be” protecting monarchs or trying to starve them. I see this all the time. A rare species in trying to protect them they will fine you for collecting one specimen but will allow a developer to bulldoze their last remaining area, or one of their last. Ignorance abounds !
