My understanding from the AZ Dept. of Ag. is that we can neither sell nor
bring either the improved or older Meyer into the state but if people had
them before the prohibition went into effect it is still okay provided they
are not infected with CTV.  I also know several people in AZ that still have
the older Meyer but none with the Improved version.

With regard to CA, I don't know the restrictions with any authority.  But
note that the Sunset Western Garden Book indicates that the Improved Myer is
the only one that can be sold in CA.  If that is incorrect, Sunset Books
should be notified so that can be corrected in the next issue.
