Getting Serious

Saturday 25 February 2012 - Filed under Uncategorized

If your car has a “hidden compartment”, whatever that might be, don’t take it to Ohio. The Columbus Dispatch:

A hidden compartment in your vehicle, with or without drugs, could mean big trouble as Ohio officials get serious about slowing down drug-smuggling.

A proposed state law, advocated by Gov. John Kasich, would make it a fourth-degree felony to own a vehicle equipped with secret compartments. A conviction would mean up to 18 months in jail and a potential $5,000 fine.

So after 40 years and trillions of dollars fighting the war on drugs, it’s only now that Ohio is putting in to effect a pointless law about “hidden compartments” in cars that won’t stave off drug use one iota that drug warriors are “getting serious.”

Give me a fucking break.
