    Well, golly! The article said that "No special license" was required!

    If its on the internet, it must be true, right!?

    Well, there isn't any special license required.

    To quote Dr. McCoy from Star Trek III, "There aren't gonna be any damned permits! How can you get a permit to do a damned illegal thing?"

    The Nebraska State Patrol makes regular arrests on Interstate 80 for various drug trafficking. Among the violations listed in the paper is “Failure to obtain tax stamp.”

    How does that even work?

    “Hello, Department of Revenue? Can I get a tax stamp for 100 pounds of weed, 3 pounds of meth, 1/2 pound of ketamine, and, just to be on the safe side, 3 pounds of fentanyl? Here’s my address you can just mail it to me”

    What makes it illegal? He only passed a secret key. No encryption mentioned. As an experiment there was no profit made, just proving it could be done
