For a teenager wanting to buy condoms, it can seem like a very long walk from the pharmacy in the back of the store to the cashier. Then there's the nerve-wracking wait in line, hoping no one notices the box in your hand.
If that sounds like too much stress, California health officials are offering some teens the option of getting free condoms in the mail.
