Help prevent HR 1528 - a draconian anti-drug bill
    #4605299 - 08/31/05 09:28 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

From Entheology.org:

No More Drug War!

Tell Congress To Oppose HR 1528

Dear Fellow Reformer,

We're in the fight of our lives in Washington, DC. High-ranking members of Congress want to take the war on drugs to a whole new level.

They want to increase penalties for every drug offense. They want a mandatory 2-year prison term for anyone who knows someone is selling marijuana on a college campus and fails to report it to the police within 24 hours. They want a mandatory 5-year prison term for someone at a party who passes a marijuana joint to someone who has been enrolled in drug treatment at some point in their life. They want to expand the federal "three strikes and you're out" law to include new offenses, including mandating life imprisonment (with no possibility of parole) for anyone convicted a third time under the RAVE Act.

Take Action Now

These and other horrible provisions are inside Congressman Sensenbrenner's H.R. 1528, entitled "Defending America's Most Vulnerable: Safe Access to Drug Treatment and Child Protection Act of 2005". You helped us derail this bill last year, but now it's back - and it's longer and more draconian.

I'm not going to lie, we're up against the most powerful forces in the federal government. We hope you will continue to stand with us in this massive showdown. Some of you have already taken action in key congressional districts and it's had an impact. Once on the fast track, the bill has stalled in committee. Drug war extremists are regrouping, however, and it's only a matter of time before they strike back. We need to keep the heat on members of Congress to kill this bill.

In short, we're up against Goliath. But, we have tens of thousands of "Davids" like you on our side. If we all work together we can put up one hell of a fight and hopefully win.

This battle - one of our most important this year - is only the beginning. In four other areas the drug policy reform movement has launched offensives to target the drug war establishment at its weak points. We're serious about taking down Goliath.


If you're looking to do something about it, go to the Drug Policy Alliance's webpage on this issue and send a letter to your representitive to prevent this bill from passing.


--------------------
The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

No need, drug use is so destructive that 100% of all drug users eventually die!

who came up with this bill? Senator Stalin?

they should rename it "Release child molesters and murderers early act."

Sensenbrenner (spelled wrong) did it.

he's some sort of genocidal manic street preacher turned senator as far as I can tell. But I don't know much, being a stupid drug user.

Do write your repsentatives though... this thing should never see the light of day..... when will we focus on real threats to our security rather than making up false ones to distract people from real issues?

Then again, I bet they blame this hurricane on drugs... Katrina is clearly a pothead.
