Man Jailed for Importing Orchids

How about that? One George Norris from Texas was imprisoned for 17 months in 2004 because he had illegally imported orchids to the United States. His house was raided, his savings ransacked to pay for a lengthy trial, his livelihood destroyed, all because he shipped a few plants into the country? It's hard to believe but it happened.

Read more at the Heritage Foundation or watch Norris on Fox Business' Stossel Show which aired last week.
