Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No I'm saying fine you can trade between NY and California, but unless you go round or over, you have to pass through several intervening states, how come thir laws don't interfere?

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Well, most of the mail does go through the air.

But, for one, the post office is not in the habit of opening up mailed packages. If it were, I'm sure there would be findings of many violations of mail fraud law.

Two, only the destination matters. If it's sent from Cali and the postmark is NY, then those are the only jurisdictions involved.

So levitating wine doesn't count, but if it touches the ground someone is in big trouble?

Does the law also apply to pigs?
