Chickenpox lollipops? Some moms may be sending in mail‎

You’ve probably heard of "chickenpox parties," where parents get unvaccinated kids together (in the home of an infected child) in the hopes they'll catch the disease. They think making their kids suffer through the disease will help them develop stronger immunity than immunization would provide.

But now the buzz is all about people shipping objects that have been contaminated with the chickenpox virus to people who live too far away to attend a pox party.

A Nashville TV station Thursday reported on a local woman who charged $50 a pop to ship suckers smothered in saliva by her sick kids.

Spurred by that story, Nashville federal prosecutor Jerry Martin on Friday warned parents not to try it. “It’s illegal and unsafe,” Martin told the Associated Press.

A Phoenix TV station last week reported that a Facebook page called “Find a Pox Party in Your Area” was helping to arrange shipments of contaminated objects—jammies, blankets, suckers.
