Finally, our lawmakers have banned incandescent light bulbs. These will be replaced by mercury filled CFL’s for which we have no disposal program. Never mind, the fact that they won’t work in your outdoor fixtures in the winter. Never mind they cost 6x as much to purchase. Never Mind the government is watching out for you!
So now is the time to start hoarding incandescent bulbs. As these become rare, many will seek these for unique fixtures etc. Will we have to deal with our local pot or coke dealers to get these bulbs as well? Of course they will still be available in foreign countries. When you reenter the U.S. you will be asked "Do you have any light bulbs to declare?"
I don’t know but please read my previous post on CFL’s being dangerous. At least learn how to protect yourself and your family should you break one of these.
