    That doesn't sound right to me. But being California who knows......Having the government get into business telling what they have to do as far as buy backs is a slippery slope to me. I understand regulation but dictating "protection" is anti capitalism to me.
    Whether you think can or think you can\'t, you\'re probably right!

    It goes back from Sobe, when they pulled out. It almost put a standard of like $2 per case. The second tier is, if you agree to purchase a certain number of cases in a contract, then you have basicaly signed a purchase order, and could be held to all thoes cases. So it goes both ways, distributors are protected by precident (you would have to go to court as I do not believe this is written law) and the suppliers are protected from dist. just sitting on their brand and holding it hostage.
