    If anyone here has read the book "The Help" you know there is another alternative other than the ex-lax in a pie....... just sayin'.

    I'm pretty sure the prosecutor will liken this to a homeowner placing mantraps to thwart burglary, especially if it was hasheesh or another "illegal" substance and not ExLax. And given the sort of Boobus Americanus they like to put on juries, it will likely fly. And don't doubt for a second Blogdad Bob would be screaming bloody murder from his bully pulpit over at Propaganda Village.

    I seriously doubt it.

    I dunno, Mike. I'm leaning toward Frank's POV on this one because of some of the outrageous judgements that have been going down lately. I would not be surprized if the stasi-state filed criminal charges and given some of the brain-dead people that serve on juries, it just might just result in conviction. I have no more faith in the criminal justice system than I have in the "federalized professionalized security" of the TSA.:rolleyes:

    Well then, harm at the hands of the TSA should be received how? If we claim a rape, we're guilty of slander? But if they steal our property and get indigestion that's also our fault? In Frank's world, we are supposed to acknowledge our overlords regardless of equity in the law. Luckily most of us don't buy that crap.
  6. You know what? Make it a single ex-lax cupcake. Thief eats it, it's gone, thief gets the runs. There's no leftover to be tested. Will the thief even recognize what happened? Maybe he thinks he just got sick.

    Just don't try the eyedrops in a drink trick. That killed some midget luchadores in Mexico a couple years ago. Very sad story.

    But what if I made my cakes with Ex-Lax because I needed them that way (solid medical reasons), surely there can't be an offence then?

    Alas, then the prosecution would simply contend that you should have declared it as a medicine. Tch, tch, tch...shame on you! Verdict: GUILTY! :rolleyes:

    No case here IMO. They were good when I turned them over. Someone must have tampered with them *after* I turned them over. They were supposed to be destroyed, not consumed.

    Could they file against me if they drank the lighter fluid they confiscated from me last week?

    Only liquid medications need to be declared. Medications in forms that normally pass screening (solids, cakes, pies) do not need to be declared.

    All of that notwithstanding, a "mantrap" is significantly different since it uses a firearm or explosive device or other dangerous weapon, and involves a "violent" act, either of which would remove it out of the "minor assault" provisions of Section 531. And in federal court, the judge applies the sentencing guidelines and the jury has no decision making in that regard. With hashish, you might get a charge of Trafficing in a Schedule one drug since any transfer is covered.
    In any case, there is a huge proof issue since Ex-Lax is a hydroxyanthracene glycoside which would be excreted rather rapidly (That is the point, after all.), and hashish is subject to a toxicological blood test for 48 hours, or less, depending on dosage.

    I thought a mantrap was someone like Mae West.

    If you want a seriously positive approach, and you can get your hands on a small nuclear reactor, you can order some Bismuth209 from a chemical supply house and bombard it with neutrons, creating Bismuth210, which in turn decays into Polonium210, which the KGB's successor organization used to kill dissident Alexander Livenenko in 2006. PO210 is 250,000 times more toxic than hydrogen cyanide. Which is another reason not to smoke tobacco, since tobacco plants fertilized with phosphate containing fertilizers, which is to say most of them, uptake PO210 into the plant tissues, including the leaves.

    By that point, you're probably already on the No Fly List. ;) But just in case, I've made a second note to myself: don't mess with 4nsicdoc. :D
