Isn't this akin to a state legislature mandating that the DOT block
drugs at the state's border?

Also, why is the order to block sites rather than monitoring and
arresting Minnesotans who are violating the law?   Sort'a looks like
the MN legislature is trying to hide the bad behavior of it's
citizens. ;-)
