Hawaii #11 That's Illegal!

No, it's not! Ha, ha, ha to the crazy lady on the easy hike we took with Ranger JZ at the volcano. It is not illegal to take rocks out of Hawaii.

Chapter 171.58.5 of Hawai`i Revised Statutes states:

Prohibitions. The mining or taking of sand, dead coral or coral rubble, rocks, soil or other marine deposits seaward from the shoreline is prohibited with the following exceptions:

(1) The taking from seaward of the shoreline of such materials, not in excess of one gallon per person per day for reasonable, personal, noncommercial use;

And even if it were, too late.
