They're regulated in some parts of Nevada and illegal according to federal, state and local governments everywhere else.

Dreaming is technically prayer without God being involved.

I'm talking about a physical action, not mental.

Just eating a bowl of Cheerios with milk involes the FDA, USDA, ICC and sales taxes paid on the bowl and spoon.

Illegal isn't regulated. It's barely enforced

The IRS will collect your income taxes.

If you use any kind of power tool or soldering iron, the government will not allow it's manufacture without a UL approval.

Re: Obama - Officially next preident of the USA.

But neither of which is "regulation". Regulation is requiring to be licensed, registered, and following a certain trade code.

OK Rich.

Morton's or Ruth's Chris in Annapolis. Beers at Rams Head Tavern a couple blocks away. I'll bring my RG and you can tweak it while we're waiting on the salads.

Re: Obama - Officially next preident of the USA.

And how shall I pay this hooker?

U.S. Treasury Notes, cheap whiskey (regulated by the U.S. treasury), or cocaine (laws enforced by the FBI, DEA, ATF and U.S. Military)???

My ass chafes everytime I drive into DC. It must be the political climate.

At least we have purty girls on boats at the Annapolis docks.
