Washington DC: Congress has banned the sale, transportation and production of salt in the USA. Pickle, potato chip and pretzel manufacturers, chefs, fish processors and various US frost-belt snow removal companies have filed federal court challenges, that the bill is unconstitutional.
The food police have been re-designated the salt police and are busily routing out salt-legers and trying to pinch off the supply of contraband salt. A pillar of Washington DC society, a Mrs. Lot, residing at the intersection of Sodom and Gomorrah Streets was discovered running a basement Salt-Mill. Her partner was a retired old-salt named Jones.
Where salt was once plentiful before the law was passed, illegal Salt-Easy vegetable stands have sprung up selling baked potatoes, tomatoes, corn and black market bathtub salt. Federal authorities fear that the use of Sodium and Chlorine to make bathtub salt could be hazardous to law abiding citizens.
The Supreme Court will ultimately shake the problem out during their fall season term! Apparently Congress and the president didn't give a grain of thought to this legislation, as this law rubs salt into the old wound of Prohibition.
