See Health Canada's Rulings on Henna!  Canada has sensible legistation! Canada has made PPD "black henna" illegal and kept natural, traditional, safe henna legal, and defined the difference between the two!  Don't you wish your country had such a law outlawing what hurts people while protecting the ancient safe tradition of henna? Contact your legistators and show them Canada's ruling!
