Governor Richardson: I Get My Policy Ideas from The Onion

Yet another Onion story has come true.

The Onion:
Citizens spoke before Congress Monday in support of Tony's Law, a Senate measure that would require all marijuana-law offenders to inform their neighbors
if they're holding.

"Right now, countless Americans are living on the very same blocks as convicted illegal-drug users," said Sharon Logan of the Weed For Tony Coalition. "Without a federal mandate requiring full disclosure, how are unsuspecting residents supposed to find any decent weed?"

Real life:
Gov. Bill Richardson said Monday, on the eve of the 2007 legislative session, that he would seek legislation creating a public registry for drug dealers similar to the one that now exists for sexual offenders... The proposed drug-dealer registry would be modeled after a national bill that has been introduced by U.S. Rep. Steve Pearce.
Wow. Talk about a public service. I can't wait to find out where the drug dealers are in my neighborhood.

Thanks to apple for the tip.
