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.

That's right: Passing a joint to someone who used to be in drug treatment will land you in federal prison for a minimum of five years.

The "Defending America's Most Vulnerable: Safe Access to Drug Treatment and Child Protection Act of 2005" (H.R. 1528) was introduced by House Judiciary Committee Chairman James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) on April 6, and it has already passed out of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security.

It is sad that (most) people are worth more to the state (and Country) in jail then free. Non violent drug use should not ever serve jail time, nor should pot be illegal. They are only because of the income they produce on the backs of the American people.

Expect this and more (similar) laws to be coming out in full force, also expect to see laws normally not enforced (like jay walking) being vigorously ticketed.

Police have evolved to be the modern day tax collector, but remember a ticket is a contract, and you have the right to not enter into any contract.
