Should We Regulate the Scattering of Ashes?

An environmental company in New Zealand is pushing for a law that would ban the spreading of ashes, except in places where permission has been granted to those spreading the ashes.

This is due to the fact that the Māori people of New Zealand believe that the ashes are sacred, which prevents them from collecting food in areas where ashes are spread.

No steps have been taken, since a law like this would be very hard to regulate. However, given the increasing rate of cremation, we will probably see more discussions about the regulation of the scattering of ashes in New Zealand - and in the United States.
