They definitely do have the right to choose how they want to sell their product and spend their money. However they do not have the right to take advantage of someone who doesn't know better. I know that my ginseng is good, so I'm not worried about selling mine but I personally know a young man who recently got burnt. I had seen his ginseng and know first hand that it was top of the line quality but the buyer convinced him that he had to give him much less for some of his roots. As I said, I saw his ginseng green (of which his average root weighed 1.3 oz) and dried, of which was dried correctly and unbroken. I'm really not trying to kick anyone personally or I would name names. I'm just trying to make the point that nobody should be taken advantage of...buyer or seller. It just so happens that this particular case involved an unscrupulous buyer.
