The House Judiciary Committee passed a bill 10/6/2011 that would make it a federal crime for U.S. residents to discuss or plan activities on foreign soil that, if carried out in the U.S., would violate the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) — even if the planned activities are legal in the countries where they’re carried out. “Under this bill, if a young couple plans a wedding in Amsterdam, and as part of the wedding, they plan to buy the bridal party some marijuana, they would be subject to prosecution,” said Bill Piper, director of national affairs for the Drug Policy Alliance.
• Should the U.S. government punish American citizens traveling in foreign countries for committing acts that are legal in those countries but illegal here?
• Should the U.S. legalize drugs that are legalized in other countries?
• Should the U.S. follow European countries in how they treat addicts?
