So, if there is a transaction between you and me, you the seller, me the purchaser, you the seller is breaking the law, not me the purchaser.
And that is where they get you with a conspiracy charge. The seller cannot commit his crime of selling the magazine without a willing buyer. Thus the willing buyer is an actual participant in the conspiracy to commit the crime.
If you haven't seen it with your own eyes,
or heard it with your own ears,
don't make it up with your small mind,
or spread it with your big mouth.
