California border check points

I haven't been to California for 40 yrs. That was DW 10 yr class reunion. Now it's about time for the 50 yr. As I recall we were stopped at a check point just inside the border and they asked if we had any fresh fruit or veggies. They were worried about bugs of some sort I think. Anyone know what they ask about these days? I don't want to take something that I just have to give to them.

use to live there the boarder stop is so far in that all you say is no we have been just traveling around, they don't check nothing. Up north the the stations in Truckee Cal. just say i'been here. It the biggest waste of time and money I have ever seen. Must have went thru that stop 20 times coming back from skiing.

They didn't ask, we had to open up and they went in alone, checked the refrigerator and took out the lettuce and tomatoes...best to not take any fresh fruits and vegs into CA.

When I went through about a month ago they didn't bother me. I think they are concerned about fruit and firewood. I had a truck full of firewood and they didn't even ask about it.

I refuse to even go into California. I don't like their politics and don't want to give them any money for breaking some unknown law they make.

They don't want any outside critters killing crops. Not a big deal. Don't see any reason for the complaint's. i'm sure Michigan is real nice this time of the year.And yes for the most part Ca. sucks.

Wait, California has their own border patrol? I know we have them between countries but this is the first time I've heard of them between states.
