Electronic commerce has opened a world of possibilities for consumers. It allows buyers to quickly compare prices between products and to easily purchase wanted merchandise. Remember, that if it's illegal to buy it in person, it's still illegal to purchase it on the Internet. Buying illicit drugs over the Internet is, of course, a crime. It is also illegal to purchase any controlled substances, including pharmaceuticals over the Internet without a valid prescription. Certain weapons are outlawed in Massachusetts and you risk prosecution if you purchase these items via the Internet.
