    Best thing is to buy things from China and avoid US manufacturers going through this.

    Yawn, ya outa staters, if you are going to make a joke at least make it accurate.

    Pot has been legal in WA since I-502 was passed in 2012

    Or you could buy from one of seasoft's US competitors who hasn't profited on poisoning people or the environment

    Court pleadings aren't facts. They are the side of the story of whoever wrote it.

    Why is anyone getting involved that involved in this? Unless you are a party of this, or a nearby resident I fail to see how this warrants people getting up in arms to the point that we have anonymous posting account.

    "The 1000 Denier Cordura is water resistant. Unlike mesh materials it is unlikely that the contents will leech out."
    Delusional too.

    Most everyone posting in this thread is "anonymous". ScubaBoard has never required real names to be used and probably never will.

    Well to be fair, I think it's silly to pay any business what they ask for dive weights. It's just over the top stupid. I made all mine. I think it costs about $1/lb to DIY soft weights. Went to a shotgun range and bought a couple large bags of reclaimed shot. Ordered a bunch of velcro soft weight pouches. Combined with a postage scale, fill. Bob's your uncle. I guess those that prefer hard lead would probably be better off buying. I doubt melting your own lead would be very fun. Still, the premium scuba companies charge for lead is just unbelievable. It's been a while but I think it was around $5/lb. At 500% markups, I can see why there's a few businesses that sell the stuff.

    Thanks. I did find that case, but it was devoid of any real info. No photos, addresses, actual documents. I was hoping to find a copy of the complaint and some of the details. Is that because I'm not registered? I guess I'm spoiled by my local county which does provide all that stuff to anyone who wants to access it.

    I have turned out hundreds of pounds of hard weights.
