This debate could go on and on.... what good is it going to do?
The same debate can be applied to having children! Simple fix for that, use birth control, but people are too stupid to do that too!
For snakes, as long as there is commercial profit to be gained from the sale of snakes there is going to be a problem. No matter what we say or do there is always going to be a stupid kid that will buy that cute little albino burm and think it's cool. All we can do is stick together and basically do damage control.... make sure the animals are placed into good home if need be and give good advice to those who ask.
IMO if we push laws to combat the sale of Burms and retics it is going to in some way shape or form hurt those of us in the hobby that are responsible owners.
