Laws are funny things: there are various reasons for obeying them and disobeying them:

Laws such as those against theft and murder - well, most of us would not consider doing these things whether there was a law there or not - and most of agree that the laws should exist.

The outlandish laws which inspired this node may be safely ignored.

It is the laws on the borderline which interest me: in parts of the UK, posession of class B drugs (i.e. Cannabis) is officially a crime, yet many policemen choose to either ignore the matter, or confiscate the drugs and omit to press charges. So is it criminal or not? Is it immoral or not?
