What is illegal but readily available anyway?

I was having a discussion today with someone and the subject of laws and outlawing different things came up. My point was making things illegal is largely a moot point since they are generally pretty easy to get a hold of. Obviously two of the most common are drugs and prostitution. In most areas they are illegal yet doesn't take much to find a hooker or escort. Most guns used in crimes were already illegal, either stolen or purchased through a straw buyer.

It's illegal for kids under 21 to drink yet they seem to have no problem getting their hands on liquor. Prescription drugs are wildly misused.

What other illegal stuff is pretty easy to get?

Re: What is illegal but readily available anyway?

By your definition, isn't any criminal act that is not detected or caught a readily available illegal acts? Theft of any kind, whether it be petty theft or white collar insider trading. What about front runners? (watch 60 minutes) Drive-by shootings, unsolved homicides. Geez, how much time do you have?

Just because it's illegal in the books, it doesn't mean there won't be people stupid enough to do it. We should just do away the entire judicial system then.

I live in West Virginia. I'll give you one guess.

Lets just say, if you find any clear liquid in my fridge, don't assume it's water.

In my neck of the woods :



-- Now actually having a girl delivered to your room to disrobe is perfectly legal. Prostitution is not. Unsurprisingly that's a difficult law to enforce round here.

Porn that crosses the line into obscenity isn't technically illegal until it is found to be obscene by a jury. Fisting and Beastiality porn has a high probability of being found obscene, but I don't think it's valid to say it is outright illegal.

Milk yes, but eggs aren't pasteurized, and really, honey is the US is required to be pasteurized? Because pasteurizing honey doesn't make it safer.

Pasteurize.
