    Yeah, you are right, wonder why they are allowed to do that?

    They clearly mark it as firewood...I would never sell to people heating there house. Just is not worth it to them or me. I will sell to bbq or the back yard burners only. Kinda a spin off quads gig. Small amouts only!

    Washington says this on their weights and measurements page:
    "Only packaged wood, such as kindling or a very small bundle of firewood, may be sold by the cubic foot or a fraction of a cubic foot."

    Maybe other states do that, too. I don't remember Illinois saying that.
