Why is this happening? Is the IL gov on crack? I had to do a double take because I thought this was a joke. Illinois Governor Puts Kibosh On Flavored Condoms (NBC4-IL):

Illinois’ governor is pulling the plug on flavored and colored condoms. Gov. Rod Blagojevich is ordering the state public health department not to buy any more of the lively condoms.

A spokeswoman for the governor said Blagojevich feels the condoms are inappropriate because they encourage sexual activity.

But some health workers are disappointed by the decision. One outreach specialist, Dante Bryant, says the condoms in bright colors and flavors were able to catch the attention of young people.

“That’s the generation we’re trying to get because they’re engaging in risky behavior,” Bryant said.
