          Animal Fur

          Continuing demand...
          In November 2011, West Hollywood, Calif., became the first U.S. city to ban the sale of clothing made of animal fur. The ban goes into effect in 2013, and animal rights activists hope it will lead other cities to adopt similar measures and, ultimately, end the practice of using animal fur entirely.If history is any indication, even an all-out nationwide ban on animal fur is unlikely to squelch demand. Rather, the likelihood is that it would create a black market for such items. After all, many luxury goods have existed for centuries and enjoyed widespread popularity despite official bans, stiff penalties and long prison sentences for those found trafficking in or purchasing such goods. Clothing with animal fur has always had an image of luxury and sophistication for those who wear it, and banning it would likely do little to change that

          Ivory
          Ivory is a primary component of the teeth and tusks of such animals as elephants and walruses. It was widely used in such items as chess pieces, billiard balls and piano keys until its use was associated with the rapid decline of elephant populations throughout the world

          Python skin
          Python skin has been used in China since ancient times to construct the erhu, a traditional bowed musical instrument. Ever since the reptile was added to the endangered species list, China has strictly regulated the trade of python skins, allowing erhus to be made only from farm-raised snakes

          Casu Marzu
          Casu marzu is a cheese considered a regional delicacy in Sardinia. Its name translates as "rotten cheese," and with good reason -- it's the end product of leaving an entire chunk of pecorino cheese outside and allowing it not only to ferment but to become infested with fly larvae.Casu marzu was banned in the European Union for reasons of human safety. Eating the cheese with the larvae still alive can cause parasitic infections, and eating it after the larvae have died means consuming a product that has become so fermented, it is too toxic for human consumption. The ideal compromise would be to remove the living larvae and eat the cheese once it's free of its larval guests, but doing so is said to cheat the consumer out of its aphrodisiac qualities

          Luxury showerheads
          Ever since 1992, the American showerhead has been legally constrained from delivering more than 2.5 gallons of water per minute, thanks to a federal law designed to conserve natural resources

          Cuban cigars
          In February 1962, President John F. Kennedy imposed a trade embargo against Cuba, and ever since, American cigar enthusiasts have had to be satisfied with American stogies or those of our allies. According to most cigar enthusiasts, however, almost any cigar from outside of Cuba is a pale substitute for the real thing.

          Beluga caviar
          Caviar, like champagne, is associated with luxury and extravagance. One of the most desirable varieties is beluga caviar, which comes from the beluga sturgeon and is the most expensive caviar in the world, provided you can get it.

          Ocelot fur
          The ocelot is a wildcat native to Mexico, Central America and South America, with the occasional appearance in Texas and Arizona. It looks similar to a leopard, which makes its spotted fur a highly in-demand commodity. So coveted, in fact, that the ocelot was declared an endangered species in 1972

          Foie gras
          Foie gras is the liver of a duck or a goose that has been subjected to a special fattening process two weeks before its slaughter. The process is known in French as "gavage," in which the animal is force-fed corn through a tube. The process makes the liver taste irresistibly rich, and it is a popular French delicacy

          Ortolan
          The ortolan is a tiny bird found in Europe, Western Asia and Africa that's about the size of a human thumb. In 2007, the French government began treating the bird like the endangered species that it is, much to the chagrin of the French, it contains "sheeps lung" which is banned in the USA. The bird is captured, force-fed oats and millet, soaked in Armagnac and roasted alive. The gourmet then eats the bird whole, bones and all, while wearing a napkin over his or her head to soak up all the heavenly aromas and, according to the Wine Spectator, "to hide from God."

          This is just the short list, most of this stuff i wouldn't touch, eat, sniff or even go near. Thank you USA for having great taste in recognizing sour. Keep on banning baby!

          there is an easy fix to the regulation....there is a little plastic regulator in all shower heads since 1992, you just have to pop it out!!!!  We have done that at our house(and every hotel room i stay in!!)

          I am for anything that will protect the rights of animals. I have to admit i love fur coats and have to be the most beautiful in the world but not at the expense of some poor innocent animal.

          And oh my the sweet sweet elephants having their tusks removed makes me weak to even think about it.

          I am really surprised some of these laws didn't go into effect sooner.
