/ Republican Congressman James Sensenbrenner has launched his next assault on freedom. The full House Judiciary Committee is set to vote as early as next week on H.R. 1528, which creates a new group of mandatory miniumum penalties for non-violent drug offenses, including a five year penalty for passing a joint to someone who's been in drug treatment. /

Glad I'm not living over there, kinda makes me realise how lucky we are.

The list of things it was going to make illegal and introduce in the way of minimum sentences was outrageous.

I'm touching myself as I write this post.
In addition to the shocking joint-passing provision described above,the bill would also create a 10-year mandatory minimum sentence for a first-time conviction of distributing a small amount of marijuana to a person under 18 years of age ... and a 10-year sentence for a second offense of distributing marijuana to a person under 21. By comparison, the average time served by convicted rapists in this country is about seven years.

They are actually trying to make it so that you can serve 2 years in prison for knowing that someone is selling marijuana and failing to report it within 24 hours.

I reckon I'm getting the fuck out of this country once I get my masters degree.
