What law do you want passed? - November 22nd 2009, 05:01 PM

There has been a lot of talk of new laws and bills being passed, the center of news lately the health care bill. We were doing this survey thing in particapation in goverment so I decided to ask Teenhelp what bills they would want passed, it could be anything you want, as creative as you want. I don't know if its been done before but I can't wait to see the answers!

If you can pass a predetermined driving test, all past speeding charges would be dropped.

^^^ Yeah, sort of an "urban rally racing" law. Shouldn't be too hard to push really.

Legalizing ethical hacking would be top on my list. I don't see how gaining access to a system, without damaging or even inspect the content within can land you in jail.

Make mental health services accessible to individuals under 18 without parental/guardian consent. I'm sick of being told by people under 18 that they want help, but their parents won't let them get it! We also need to get guns out of homes especially those with small children. The bullets are supposed to be stored seperately anyway, so if you're going to use it to defend yourself in a home invasion or something like that, it won't help you if it's empty there are also too many accidental shooting deaths and suicides related to guns. I'm all for making drunk driving a first time felony too many people die from drunk drivers. Celebrities that commit crimes and get special treatment and/or leanient sentences is unacceptable they need to be punished like everyone else! They also need to nullify the three strikes law.

Legalize marijuana by far. It's ridiculous that it hasn't happened yet.

Legalize marijuana

Outlaw political mudslinging

Enforce psychological screening on people who want to buy guns. Do not restrict firearms anymore then they already are.

Protection of P2P networks

Legal drinking age lowered to 18.

Raise the speed limits on major highways. Look at the autobahn.

Put restrictions on who can serve in a jury. Must be educated and intelligent.

Term restrictions on ALL politicians above senator.

Employ a 4th stage of the bill making process that involves a massive public vote on certain laws being written.

Burn NAFTA to the ground.

Legalize gay marriage of course

Make child molestation/rape punishable by death.

This too, but we still need to tighten up our borders.

Allow Plan B

- Make marijuana legal although with restrictions
- Make gay marriage legal
- Provide more funding and better service for mental health care
- Make prostitution legal in the way some countries have it
- Make some type of effective way of determining who is fit for jury duty
- Ensure police departments are complying with methods of eye witness that are more effective.
- Abandoning the use of polygraph tests for court-room evidence as is in Canada but not the US
- Abandon the death sentence (probably one of the more controversial ones on this list so not likely to happen all that easily)

Legalizing marijuana
Legalizing prostitution
On-demand access to Plan-B contraceptive
Making parenting courses mandatory for all new parents (maybe in dream land, I suspect this might be a bit impractical)
Legalizing consensual polygamy/polyandry
Adressing the arbitrariness of age laws - age to vote, age to drink, age to smoke, age to enrol in military etc

As I'm in Canada, legalize gay marriage is kind of a moot point, but I'd like to see it in more countries.


Not around so much now that school's started

If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life
that will live on in the memories of your loved ones."

Legalize lots of drugs, many not as harmful as alcohol and the likes, Obviously testing should be done on each one, but there are plenty of illegal substances out there that do no known harm... And yet look at alcolhol!

There was recently someone in my area who was arrested for cutting the break lines on 4 vehicles. No one driving them was injured. The judge gave him the maximum sentence
1.5 years in jail
5 years probation
Driver's license revoked for Life

If we did this to all drunk drivers the world would be a better, safer, place. The judge compared the guy to a drunk driver which is why the sentece was so heavy.

I wouldn't have been surprised if he got more, that is stupidly dangerous.

Legalize marijuana...dont understand why it hasnt been legal already?? it being illegal has only created more problems

Lower the drinking age from 21 to 18... how can my brother go overseas to fight for his country, but not be able to buy himself a bottle to celebrate his time back??

Legalize gay marriage... its their love not yours or mine. and no one should have any word in what happens with them.. love is love

Universal healthcare ... protect & provide for them all

I've lost two uncles in 5 weeks. My uncle who just died Saturday night died of Stage 4 Pancreatic cancer and it was estimated that he had had it since Early August this year, and found out 4 weeks ago. You know why he waited so long to get it checked out? He didn't have the insurance or money for it. It was only until he started feeling the excruciating pain of pancreatic cancer that he was hospitalized, ended up getting part of his leg amputated and completely deteriorated until his last breath that night. Call me crazy, but if any of you have ever seen someone go from being healthy and meaty to a bag of bones the size of my 5 foot 1, 110 pound frame, you want the health care bill passed. It has never meant so much to me to get this passed. I don't know what the hell is going on at the White house, but with the Democrat majority in the house, these bills should be like a piece of cake to pass. Above all else, I believe more than anything that health care needs to be taken care of first. I also would like to see universal legal gay marriage and drug legalization.
