    Probably like the 23andme test where NY doesn't allow mailing "biohazard" material through the US mail. Not even saliva samples. That's a no-no in NY State.

    That's interesting that NY classifies saliva samples as a "biohazard" and doesn't allow mailing it in sealed containers, while still allowing people to seal envelopes by licking them and "contaminating" the actual packaging itself with the very substance that they consider a "biohazard".
