I can’t find out if this bill passed or has even been voted on by the U.S. Senate. The bill is called the Methamphetamine Anti-Proliferation Act S.1428. It was introduced in August, but all the info I can find on it is from August. Nothing about a vote on it or anything.
The gist of the bill really doesn’t have much to do with meth. (that’s just what they call it to avoid public scrutiny)
What this bill does is make it illegal to DISSEMINATE ANY INFORAMTION on illegal drugs on the internet!! You could get TEN YEARS in the federal pen for operating a drug-related web site, and 3 years just for linking to one!!
Here’s a couple articles about it : http://www.wired.com/news/culture/story/21152.html
Here’s the text of the bill : http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d106:s.01428:
Does anybody know anything about this bill? I’m assuming it didn’t pass or I would have heard about it. Then again when it was introduced, I had to look hard to find info on it since it wasn’t covered by any newspaper, so you never know.
Anyone have any info on this First Amendment quashing bill? (heck, even the Scientologists are against it!)
