    Hr 1528 - 2yrs in prison for not narcing on drug users

    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.

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