ANY turtle can be sold safely to adults the ban is stupid its like saying you can't sell raw chicken because people might not cook it well and thus get ill.

Kids put objects in their mouths which is how they got sick from turtles . Sell them to adults and problem solved it might increase jobs,revenue in poor southern areas as now they can legally start turtle farms and raise captive bred turtles.
