What if she just came from Planned Parenthood and grabbed a handful on the way out?

I usually keep 3-4 in my purse. I rarely use one, but when I do I don't always remember to replace it. And sometimes the first one you try just won't go on, so I like to have a back-up.
I see nothing wrong with this...

Ooh, I just love it when the government encourages unwanted pregnancies and AIDS!

But seriously, that is one of the stupidest policies I have ever heard.

That's dumber than hell. If a woman bought a pack at the drug store, because there is more than three, she must be a prostitute.

I currently have a couple weeks worth of birth control pills in my bag; I must be a prostitute.

That's idiotic...
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 1/12/10 - 2:15:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
What the hell? Wow I guess being prepared in case something happens to the first condom totally means that you're selling sex.

never know when you might have a super freaky kinda day :D doesn't make you a whore

I guess it's a bit like carrying alcohol around outside- - it doesn't necessarily make you a criminal but it's a handy tool for the police etc and innocent people can learn not to do it and put up with a tiny inconvenience
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 1/12/10 - 3:09:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
Aww, and I've always wanted to hook on the corner of 17th and Pennsylvania

I see it more that innocent people have no reason to fear being busted on these grounds. Sodomy is illegal, but the only time that's ever used is as an exacerbating factor in sexual assault cases. No consenting couples are being charged, and no woman is going to be randomly shaken down and busted strictly because she's carrying a fresh 3-pack of condoms.
Still... putting this much power in the hands of the police is kind of sketchy.

Maybe not, but it also won't stop prostitution. It'll just make it less likely that prostitutes are practicing safe sex. Which means not only are they more in danger of catching STDs, but so are the wives or their johns. Let's not forget that DC has the highest HIV/AIDs rates in the US.

You're totally right, catchall. I hadn't thought of that angle.

My friend was talking about this ALL DAY in school. I think it's really stupid. Especially if you just bought a pack, how are you supposed to have less than 2 on you?

Is this actually a law?

[citation needed]
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Tuesday 1/12/10 - 6:11:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
That's ridiculous. What are you supposed to bring to your Saturday night gangbang? i'd be in serious trouble.
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/13/10 - 1:39:54 AM EST (GMT-5)
That just stupid.

Law generally doesn't dictate what does and does not constitute evidence.

Uh oh... Looks like I'm a prostitute. Lmao.
12 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Wednesday 1/13/10 - 12:17:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
they come 3 to a package. Suspicion of prostituition is just retarded. But there's a lot of retarded laws out there so i guess it doesnt matter.

I'll believe it when I read it from a known reliable source.
