   Southern Exposure Seed Exchange (www.southernexposure.com) in 
Earlysville, VA carries woad seed in their "Garden Medicinals and 
Culinaries" herb catalog.  In the catalog they state "Cannot ship to 
ID, MT, OR, UT, or WY", so I'd guess that those are the states where 
it's restricted.  Wouldn't hurt to check if there's any doubt, though...
