    Well, I just wanted to get everybody's feeling on this. I highly doubt that this will even go further than the pretrial. When they see how dumb this really is, the judge will just laugh it out of court. I'm planning on bringing in a couple of plants and, my copies of The Savage Garden and CP's of US and Canada. Whoever had the idea of taking the books to court, thanks. Thats a really good idea. I remember when I was reading on Barry Rice's site about if cp's are dangerous. I think I'll look that up and print it out. I'll update everybody on what happens Tuesday.
    And to everybody that thinks this is some kind of joke, all I can say is I'm truly hurt that you think I would do that.

    You're going to give the judge a funny story he'll tell for years (or if he isn't the jovial type he may let loose on the landlord for wasting the court's time). And the landlord is going to remember this forever and feel very stupid (unless he's actually stupid... the genuinely stupid don't seem to feel stupid very often, strangely)... and maybe he'll be extra nice to you or go out of his way to avoid stepping on your toes in the future.

    I think you can walk into that court room with complete confidence. You can come back here afterwards and tell us how amusing it ended up being.

    well Ozzy is known for jokes. the thing is i have seen copys of similar laws from various places. the basic intent was to keep ppl from growing potentially extreamly deadly plants in their yard that someones toddler or pet would munch on and die. chances are the laws originated from a law suit over some plant someone was growing along their sidewalk. hell i have monkshood growing in one of my gardens, the stuff is EXTREAMLY toxic if the roots are eaten and is one of the few plants i wear gloves for transplanting cause any juices from the roots getting in a cut may not be fatal but they wont be fun. however it has quite pretty flowers and is hardy up here on the "tundra" so i grow it. good luck Ozzy, i do honestly bet you have no problems but it is a real hassel.

    Bring a vft and let him stick his finger in it, or at least rip the trap open and explain its a leaf. Just make sure there are no dead insects in it. Zongyi

    I'm with rattler_mt on this. I'd bring a copy of The Savage Garden, or Carnivorous Plants of North America, and perhaps a few specimens of your plants; maybe a sundew, a VFT, a Sarracenia and/or a Nepenthes as evidence.

    Regardless of whether this is a civil or criminal proceeding, it is the town's obligation to prove that your plants are dangerous, not yours to prove they're not. I understand that until this is resolved, you are going to be very nervous; I would be too, regardless of how certain I felt I was right, because I have no way of accounting for the possible idiocy of the people sitting in judgement of me and my plants.

    As long as you can demonstrate that these plants are a danger only to insects, and produce no toxins an unwary child could consume, you should be perfectly fine.

    I would also petition city council, after you are exonerated, to change the law to make specifically clear what is meant by 'dangerous plants'.

    You may also be able to file charges against your landlord for filing a false police report; I'd at least look into it. There must be a written complaint on record from him that served as the initial cause to serve you with this summons.

    Failing criminal action against the landlord, I'd at least put a darzin fish bumpersticker on his car. Something tells me he's the kind of person who would find that particularly offensive.

    Good luck, and stay calm!
