The utter absurdity of drug laws

Jim Todd has an OpEd in the Tennessean: Fairness demands a new look at Drug Free School Zone Act

Call it political suicide, but the state Legislature needs to re-examine the Drug Free School Zone Act.

It’s ridiculous (but not a surprise) that such a thing might be considered political suicide, particularly when you read a description like this:

Consequently, a person who drives through a school zone with cocaine on their way to a sale outside of the school zone, during summer on a Sunday night, will still receive 15 years in prison, the same as a person convicted of raping a child or second-degree murder.

Shows how little the law actually cares about children, despite its apparent intent.
