We Have a Law for That, This is California Damn it!

California gained 725 new laws this morning, all of them signed by outgoing Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger(R). Marijuana is now legal (SB1449), trans-fats are not (AB97).

New rule: never bake marijuana brownies with Crisco.

Of the 725 new laws, there's one I like. Informally known as Chelsea's Law, AB 1844, introduced by Assemblyman Nathan Fletcher(R-Costa Mesa), increases penalties, parole provisions and oversight of sex offenders, including a "one-strike, life-without-parole penalty" for some offenders. If that's not unbelievabe enough, the Democrat majority Assembly and Senate voted for this law.
