No. No. 71-CR-15358, (N.C. Super. Ct., 12/31/1971)

Prohibition of "open burning" as opposed to "smokestack burning" by a State Regional Air Pollution Control Board does not constitute an unreasonable classification in violation of the equal protection clause of the North Carolina Constitution. The prohibition of only open burning does not constitute an exclusive privilege granted to industry in violation of the North Carolina Constitution.
