It is much the same legal "logic" that has people doing time for buying or attempting to buy icing sugar or salt from policemen who are pretending to be drug-dealers selling heroin or coke.

Or others doing time for chatting-up policemen who pretend to be pre-teen girls.

If it looks like a duck, it gets arrested for ducking.

It's not the reality that matters, sometimes, but the intent.
