Lacey Act Bust

A 21-year-old Las Vegas, NV, man was charged with selling venomous snakes out of his home, and across state lines. Venomous herps are illegal in Nevada without permits, and attempting to sell such across state lines is in violation of the Lacey Act, which is apparently what he is being charged under. (News source.) Of course, the Nevada paper is getting their info on "deadly snakes" from the gov't officials, so not surprising to see only negative bias with no mention of responsible herpetoculture.
