New law went into effect in october 2011 where the state of michigan requries retailers to ad further info (in a yellow) tag with the purchasers infor on it "to hold people accountable at parties" but then put some stupid strict laws to go with it.. if a person is caught with a keg with out a tag its a $500 fine and possiable 93 days in jail.. for a party store that returns a keg without said tag is $500 fine and possible loss of license.. on top of that (legit) scrap yards still wont scrap them because there considered "stolen" ... So now there in limbo for some of these kegs that never made the back (average consumer dosent know to contact brewery/distributor) so they end up on craigist.. most people think there worth their weight in silver and want $100 for them but i all i have to do is tell them to meet me at a party store, have them try to return it then when they cant i explain and pay them $20 for there 34lb paper weight..
Thats how its been working for me here in MI and if anyone around here comes across it.. dont pay more than $30 for one.. is it "legal" idk but the state made it that way so the brewery can take it up with them. To me it feels "legal" cause i will convert and save it so to speak from them jus lying around or having someone chop it up and scrap it.
