The House Judiciary Committee passed a bill yesterday 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.

Which is redundant, because it has always been a crime for US citizens to engage in illicit drugs overseas. The kicker here is the "Planning and Discussion" bit. Totally farking stupid, especially now that Amsterdam shuttered its famous coffee shops to non-residents.

Just reading the OP, kinda the vibe I got as well. Seems like a pointless law.

Also, cue drug debate in 5...4...

If the gubmint spent half of the time regulating themselves that they do the citizens we'd be twice as far ahead.
