Jordan clarifies DCRA policy on distribution of safe sex materials

DEPARTMENT OF CONSUMER & REGULATORY AFFAIRS
MEMORANDUM FROM THE OFFICE OF THE DIRECTOR

TO:Alcohol Beverage Staff
FROM:Lloyd J. Jordan
SUBJECT:Distribution of Safe Sex Materials
DATE:07/20/99
CC:Roderick Woodson, Harold Nelson, Paul Waters

It has come to my attention that businesses distributing condoms or safe sex literature to customers have been treated as "sexually-oriented businesses". Be advised that the distribution of such materials does not qualify a business as "sexually-oriented". Therefore, this department's personnel shall not interfere in any way with any business that is distributing such materials unless there is violation of any applicable regulations. Behavior to the contrary will not be tolerated and will be subject to disciplinary action.
