I really do not see anything coming out of this in a bad way myself. Most of the laws and misperceptions on herps is generated by myths and "wifes tales" IMO. Also, the idea of governments establishing laws towards "monitary leaders" is correct. If anything, I see a good future due to the findings. And heck, if push came to shove, which one of you would not break the law in order to keep something????? (No need to answer!)
As for pushing the correct information in herpetoculture and the surrounding establishment, good deal. Nothing wrong with striving to make the herp world a better place for all. I just do not see anything becoming illegal or less tolerated because of it.
