You may have heard of chicken pox parties, where one (or more) children are actively dealing with a case of chicken pox, and several other children are not, all hang out and play together in hopes of building "natural immunity" to the disease.
Well now there is something even more dangerous, and illegal, and it involves complete strangers and lollipops.
Social media (like Facebook) has spawned sharing groups where parents sign up to receive a pre-licked lollipop from a child with chicken pox (and who knows what else). What parents don't realize, is that sending a disease, virus, or contagion through the post office or other mail service is illegal. This crime carries a sentence of between less then a year to 20 years if convicted.
