A Stalinist law is now pending in Congress. It has
already passed through one committee, and appears likely
to pass through another and come to the floor for a
vote. If passed it will force you to inform on your
friends, family, and neighbors if you have any knowledge
of their involvement in any kind of drug related
activity that is connected in anyway to persons under
the age of majority.

This includes drugs like marijuana and "children" who
are college students.

If you do not inform you can be sentenced to prison for
between 2 and 10 years. This kind of a system -
neighbors informing on neighbors - was one of the key
features of Stalin's Russia. If this law passes without
public outcry it will almost certainly be extended to
other areas. It must be stopped now.

This proposed new law also requires you to provide full
assistance in investigating, apprehending, and
prosecuting drug law offenders who are personally known
to you. This could involve working undercover and
wearing a wire to entrap and convict friends, family
members, and neighbors.

This law, as with so many others, is constructed in such
a way that it can be justified as a measure to protect
children, which includes anyone under the age of
majority, including many college students. It also
ensnares the private activities of parents related to
substances like marijuana. The government considers
parents who smoke pot in the privacy of their bedroom
after hours a serious threat, whereas Senators and
Congresspersons who drink large amounts of alcohol in
front of their children in the light of day, are not.

Examples of activities that could force you to inform or
face the risk of prison time:

--You see a joint passed to a college student. Call the
police immediately.

--Your child has a substance-abuse problem and begs
someone else to acquire drugs. You cannot deal with this
as a family matter, or in a drug-treatment setting. You
must inform on both of them.

--Your hear someone say they bought Ecstasy to share
with College age friends. Report this within 24 hours or
risk prosecution.

--Your sister, who has kids, mentions that she bought
some pot to share with her husband. Inform on your
sister or risk prison time.

Bump. No comments? If this applies to drugs now, you can be sure it'll apply to guns in the future.

Yes, I know (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=138275).

A better thread title might have helped. I didn't know what the bill number was, just clicked out of curiousity.
