5 Years for Passing a Joint: Stop this Bill Now

TalkLeft (blargticle)

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.

How is this an assault on freedom? It is already illegal... um... maybe we need to tell everybody what it means to be free. Because i think a lot of people have the wrong idea about what it means.

That's a Wisconsin representative! I hope they don't try to abridge my freedome of unlimited breadsticks at Fazolis next...
