Urge to Kill Rising...  
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.

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".

Who will stop this insanity? You and me.
