Default Re: Noor - Sugar Cane & good taste?

The tobacco law is from medieval purity laws that were designed to keep people from cheating on their goods. Tobacco, sold by weight, is usually smoked more or less dry. The unscrupulous would wet it so that less tobacco was actually being sold for the weight purchased. Obviously not a great law for hookah tobacco.
I wonder if there might be a way to get a law that would recognize hookah tobacco as being a "product" rather than a commodity?
I dont pretend to fathom German law. But the law is both fair and unfair at the same time.
