Exporting (Stoned) America


Students for a Sensible Drug Policy spots a proposal in South Carolina to allow overseas rendition for drug offenders and child molesters. (And, as all good students of Reefer Madness know, the transition from the former to the latter is only a matter of time.) The bill provides:

Notwithstanding another provision of law, the department may enter into agreements with foreign countries for the confinement of inmates convicted of drug related offenses or offenses related to the sexual abuse of children.

Aside from being ghastly on its face, I'm not sure how this is supposed to comport with Article 1, Section 10 of the Constitution.
