As the United States continues to adjust to the new administration, new rules and regulations continue to change the climate of our culture and politics. As new laws and expectations are being put into place, affecting every citizen, it’s fair and reasonable to wonder what is legal now that probably won’t be in another 25 years. These thoughts aren’t so extreme, as the production, importation, transportation, and sale of alcoholic beverages was once prohibited between 1920 and 1933 and is now celebrated across the world. There are also a number of things that no one knows are in fact illegal because they seem so innocent, so the future laws might not seem as crazy.

Drones have already proven to be an intrusion of privacy so it’s only a matter of time before the government gets involved in their use. Also, fake online accounts will eventually be outlawed. Many social media platforms already indicate that your online profile information must be real and true, otherwise it will be deleted, but many fake accounts still exist. The MTV show, “Catfish: The TV Show” reveals the truths and lies about online dating and fake accounts.
