The Mind-Altering Substance Accountability Act of 2012

1. Any person who chooses to use mind-altering substances such as marijuana, LSD, alcohol, psilocybin, salvia, MDMA, etc. is responsible for their actions while under the influence of said substances.

2. If a person under the influence of mind-altering substances causes the death of another Atlasian, they are to be charged with Involuntary Manslaughter and sentenced according to standards set by the region in which the offense is committed.

3. If a person under the influence of mind-altering substances causes a vehicular accident that does not take the life of another Atlasian, but instead causes them severe injuries such as paralysis, coma or amputation, they are to be charged with Reckless Endangerment and sentenced according to standards set by the region in which the offense is committed.

4. If a person under the influence of mind-altering drugs is operating a motor vehicle and is pulled over by a law enforcement official, said law enforcement official reserves the right to test the offender for sobriety. If the offender is found to be impaired by any mind-altering substance, as outlined in Section 1, they are to be charged with Driving Under the Influence of a Mind Altering Substance and should be sentenced according to standards set by the region in which the offense is committed.

I take it such substances are already legal in Atlasia?

In what way does this differ from current law?

Maybe regions should deal with this altogether.

Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

am I the only one wondering if this wouldn't be illegal anyway?

Plus if regional laws already cover this, the Bill should regard only federally owned land and territory.

I think the law is already consistent with this. And it should be left to the regions in any case.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

Section 5: Rules on Motions to Table
1. Any Senator can, during a period of debate, introduce a motion to table the legislation.

2. The PPT shall open a vote on the motion to table. This vote shall last for a maximum of two (2) days during which time the Senators must vote. Voting may be declared final at any time if the motion to table has been approved or rejected.

3. For the motion to table to pass, two thirds of those voting (excluding abstentions) must support the motion.

4. Tabled legislation shall be taken off the Senate floor.

A motion to table the pending legislation has been entered and has been signed onto by three other Senators duly choosen and sworn. Therefore, a vote is now open on the motion to table The Mind-Altering Substance Accountability Act of 2012, please vote Aye, Nay or Abstain.

I guess that means I assume sponsorship for procedural purposes. Tongue
