No More Drug-Fueled Visits to Amsterdam Under Possible New American Law

I am no were near pro-legalization of drugs but I very much disagree with this. See Wider Still and Wider

Regardless of what you think about drug prohibition, the proposed legislation raises an interesting issue of principle (and, for that matter, elementary diplomatic courtesy). The extraterritorial extension of domestic law is something that should always be done with great care and greater restraint. As is to be expected from almost anything that emerges from a Congress that is as arrogant as it is incompetent, neither quality appears evident here.
