1  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: SENATE BILL: Consistency in Drug Enforcement Bill (At Final Vote) on: Today at 12:30:44 am
Quote from: Amendment 60:36 by TNF
Consistency in Drug Enforcement Bill

1a. No municipality within Atlasia may prohibit the sale or consumption of alcohol, tobacco products, cannabis products, psilocybin mushrooms, dimethylytyptamine (DMT), lsysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), 3,4-methylenedioxy-N-methylamphetamine (MDMA), or the plants or chemicals required for their processing  including restrictions on the basis of which day of the week such products are sold. An exemption shall be provided for all municipalities under independent tribal control.
1b. Clause 1a shall not be construed to deny regions or municipalities the right to restrict the smoking, ingestion, or other use of any of the aforementioned drugs in public. Public smoking, ingestion, or usage bans will not be considered as “prohibiting the consumption of” alcohol, tobacco products, cannabis products, psilocybin mushrooms, DMT, LSD, MDMA, or the plants or chemicals required for their processing.

2. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration shall create guidelines for adequate packaging warning the casual user of the danger of addiction, damage to health, and death due to abuse of all substances encompassed by Section 1 of this bill. All these products must have packaging meeting this guidelines before they can be sold.

3. The sale of DMT, MDMA, or the plants and chemicals required for their processing to someone below the legal purchasing age for any of these products is a federal offense with a recommended fine and jail time equal to twice that of a congruent offense for the sale of tobacco or alcohol. The sale of cannabis, LSD, psilocybin mushrooms, or the plants and chemicals required for their processing to someone below the legal purchasing age for any of these products is a federal offense with a recommended fine and jail time equal to that of a congruent offense for the sale of tobacco or alcohol.

4. This law shall not be construed to prohibit anyone to purchase a product which might be considered a chemical or plant required for the processing of an aforementioned drug provided that:
    a) the purchaser in question would have legally been able to purchase the product in the absence of this law;
    b) the product has a legitimate use besides the processing of an aforementioned drug which would be legal in the absence of this law;
    and c) the purchaser in question does not intend to use the drug for the processing of an aforementioned drug, but rather another legitimate use, as defined in clause 4b.

5. Regional governments shall have the legal right to define a legal purchasing age lower than the existing federal purchasing age if they so choose, and the Republic of Atlasia will use the minimum age defined by the appropriate regional government to enforce Section 3 of this Act in the regions.

6. Section 5 of this Act shall not be construed so as to allow Regional governments to increase the legal purchase age for the aforementioned substances above their existing federal purchase age.

This is a great day for all the drunks in this great country; gone are the days where we are forced to drink water or soda because a county has outlawed booze to satisfy their pretentious ways; gone are the days of driving drunk to neighboring counties to get your fix. I want to thank all of you who made this possible.

Cheers!

What exactly do we want to redraft here? Just clarify that municipalities can ban open containers in public places?

Well, I actually beat my expected goal. What I expected to lose in 6 months, I lost in 5. As my college Dean once said, "Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son". My hard work has paid off, and I'm excited to work at my next goal. I'm happy to have lost all this weight, and can't wait to see all the new opportunities that life has to show me.

Congrats, sweetie. I'm proud of you!

What hell man? This isn't a Senate election here this thread, you people should be voting. Tongue

If it takes shaming you people to achieve progress, then so be it. Tongue

Jesus, guys, it asked for your favorite chain pizza. Why would you answer "I don't eat chain pizza." OK, does anyone care? Answer the question.

Dominos for sure. You can get a large for like $7 most nights. Papa Johns sauce is too sweet for me, but it's still a close second. I haven't been to pizza hut in years and years since I was in high school.

Yes, I love pasta; I just don't eat it very often at all. Too many carbs for my liking. Cooking is something that I love to do when I have time

I am inclined to defer to my SoEA on this issue, given he knows far more about the subject than I do. I am interested in achieving the two state solution, but there are certainly more ways to get there than just one. I do support TNF's amendment, but if it is going to hinder the peace negotiations, then we need to explore other alternatives.

How do you define useless? I just keep track of things that are important...money, investments, etc.

Blue cash preferred gives you 6% back. It has a $75 annual fee but double discount on groceries makes up for it fairly quickly. I use it to buy food almost exclusively.

God man, you just need to educate yourself on proper nutrition. You'll never get into healthy shape eating pizza, milkshakes, ham sandwiches on white bread, fries, cheeseburgers, etc. You can eat less of those things, sure, but you're still ruining your body and hurting yourself. The fact you considered today, where you ate 3 slices of pizza, a malt shake, and ham sandwiches a victory just is horrifying to me.

Bushie himself has even admitted that the diet is no more. He doesn't even try to pretend it exists now.

Yeah, he's eating bacon cheeseburgers without shame now, and I'm happy for him. He was never really dieting at all in the first place.

Bushie, when was the last time you went to that dietician?  A year ago?


This summer, I think. He said she told him he was fine and doing everything right.

Amex has credit cards these days too. I have one with a cash back perk where I get 6% back on groceries and 1% back on anything else I buy. I still have a gold Amex charge card but I don't use it a lot anymore because the perks aren't nearly as good.

Quote from: Final Text I think
Crimean Crisis Act of 2014

1. Given Russia’s disregard for international law in the ongoing crisis on Crimea, the Senate formally condemns the Russian violation of Ukrainian sovereignty with the acts of aggression regarding the military occupation and annexation of Crimea. The Senate also recognizes the validity of the Budapest Memorandum on Security Assurances, and thus it does not recognize the recent independence referendum on Crimea nor the entrance of Crimea into the Russian Federation.

2. The Senate also resolves to urge the President, the Secretary of External Affairs and the Special Envoy to Ukraine to take immediate action to make said support effective, and it encourages these officeholders to exhaust diplomatic options to prevent a Russian takeover of Ukraine or a formal annexation of Crimea or any other occupation or incursion into Ukraine. The Senate recommends the use of all options available, short of military intervention and trade sanctions.

3. The Republic of Atlasia shall lift restrictions and allow free immigration for all who feel threatened by the ongoing crisis in Ukraine.

I'll go to the greek church for hours and hours and then drink wine until 4am on Saturday night/Sunday morning. After Saturday night, I'll finally be able to eat red meat again.

Sunday I have reservations out, and I really hope they serve lamb.

What's your credit score look like?

I haven't checked it in a while and that's definitely something I will not share on the forum or on Facebook.

Silly, no one is asking you to share your numbers! Although there's nothing dangerous about sharing them.

I ran a mile further and 42 seconds less per mile today than my previous 10 runs. Not sure if it's my law school classes ending for good today or what, but I sure felt great running. I improved my time the further I ran!
