  •  True but dangers even in well-regulated states (1+ / 0-)

    Even in CA which has copious regulations there are still large developed areas at risk from dangerous plants. In San Diego County there is a Sony Plant located in a very developed area. It is in right in the middle of the Rancho Bernado area that suffered huge losses during the 2005 wildfire.  On numerous occasions the whole area has had to be evacuated due to an accidental release of toxic chemicals. I use to work at the Hewlett Packard facility next door and I vividly recall going into lock down when an incident occurred at Sony. We were all too happy to comply when they gave us permission to proceed to our cars and drive out of the area immediately.
