-reserved= those powers that the constitution does not grant to the national government and does not deny to the states (ex: forbid persons under 18 to marry without parental consent, ban the sale of pornography, outlaw prostitution, permit some forms of gambling, require doctors, lawyers, hairdressers, and plumbers be licensed in order to practice in the state)
