Chicken Pox Lollipop
There are some ways to make money that seem smart and others that seem really stupid.
A new trend is happening in Tennessee and it’s taking Facebook by storm.
There are many parents that don’t agree with vaccinating their children for the Chicken Pox Virus. We shared with you a couple of years ago about “Chicken Pox Parties” and how parents were purposely exposing their kids to chicken pox virus so they don’t have to get the vaccine.
Now it’s Chicken Pox Lollipops being sent in the mail.
Here’s how it works, parents search Facebook for a group selling lollipops, spit or other items from kids who have chicken pox.
The complete stranger selling the item packs it up and sends it via U.S. Mail.
Some of those selling the tainted items are selling them for $50 bucks. And what’s crazy is there are parents buying them!
Here’s what you parents who are buying this need to know.
#1 It’s Illegal, conviction could lead to a sentence from 1 to 20 years
#2 It’s unlikely the items will succeed in giving your child chicken pox
#3 The infected items could carry more dangerous viruses, including hepatitis
#4 To get the chicken pox virus it typically has to be inhaled
If you are engaged in this type of behavior, you're not only potentially exposing innocent people to dangerous viruses and illnesses and diseases, you're also exposing yourself potentially to federal criminal prosecution.
AFTER HEARING THIS, I AM REALLY FREAKED OUT NOW ABOUT GETTING THE MAIL.
