Student entrepreneur delivers condoms on campus

NEW JERSEY (MYFOXNY) -- When Kyle McCabe, 19, receives a phone call, it's not always someone he knows.

McCabe started a condom-delivery business called CondAm, which is short for Condom Ambulance.

After he gets a call, he puts on a helmet with a flashing light and rushes to deliver a condom to whoever wants one on his College of New Jersey campus in Ewing within 5 minutes. He carries them in a black back pack.

McCabe says weekends are the busiest time for deliveries.

So far condom brands Trojan and Lifestyles have reached out and offered to partner with him.

Kyle says the service is available 24/7, and he's got a couple volunteers to help him when he's busy.

His website -- condam.net -- lays out the terms. Students can buy a condom for $3 or 10 for $15.

Delivery can be face to face or carried out discreetly (condoms under the door) for cash and a waiver printed out from a computer.

McCabe says he hopes his business will catch on at other college campuses. He also says he understands that not everyone will be in support of what he's doing.

    Tobacco trade publications suggest that flavored cigars are driving the recent growth in cigar consumption. These products are much less expensive than cigarettes.Cigarette use among teenagers is down. But a study from Rutgers University says cigar use is up in part because of the popularity of flavored cigars. The FDA has banned flavoring in cigarettes, except for menthol, but that's not the case for cigars.

    Basil farm ready to switch to marijuana

    Basil plants grow on a New Jersey farm, but the facility could be turned into a five-acre medical marijuana greenhouse with only 48 hours' notice. The hoses from the state-of-the-art Dutch hydroponic system are watering flowers now, but with a few minor adjustments could just as easily grow marijuana plants for medicinal cannabis. The only reason it's not happening now is because the company is publicly traded and subject to federal law.
