Part 6 Federal Marijuana Laws - Is Not Knowing The Law A Form of "Entrapment"?


PART 6 FEDERAL MARIJUANA LAWS: 21 USC 960
Law Library of Congress
https://www.loc.gov/

Is it "entrapment" if you are not fairly warned and informed of all the federal marijuana laws?

When I'm finished finding all of the federal marijuana laws, would it help put a dent in police "entrapment" of people who have not been fairly warned and informed of the existing federal laws, for the State of Vermont to publish a complete booklet of all marijuana laws, state and federal, and mail it out to every registered voter, and publish copies for all high school students, and give them a test on the subject before graduation? I'll bet none of the Vermont State Legislators, Senate and Representatives, could pass a complete test on the subject!
