This topic was pretty hot when I joined the site about year and a half ago. If you search for it, I am sure it will turn up. It does seem pretty sad that the state hasn't taken the steps to correct this (as far as I know). But, zero tolerance (in numerous topics) is so easy to push through the rule books, even when common sense should be the judge.
If you live in the northern part of the state, jump across to Georgia or Alabama. If you live further south, make it a long weekend.
