Comment: Two things to consider

(See in situ)

Two things to consider

1. Uniform Code of Miltary Justice Article 112a
Any person subject to this chapter who wrongfully uses, possesses, manufactures, distributes, imports into the customs territory of the United States, exports from the United States, or introduces into an installation, vessel, vehicle, or aircraft used by or under the control of the armed forces a substance described in subsection (b) shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.

(b) The substances referred to in subsection (a) are the following:

(1) opium, heroin, cocaine, amphetamine, lysergic acid diethylamide, methamphetamine, phencyclidine, barbituric acid, and marijuana, and any compound or derivative of any such substance.

2. DD Form 4/1 Military Enlistment Contract

The UCMJ is the code used to prosecute military personnel and the contract is their consent.

Though they do taket an oath to support and defend the constitution, I believe it is the enlistment contract that puts them into military jurisdiction. See the pdf of the enlistment contract under section C.

As the Drill Instructors always use to say "USMC= U Signed the MotherF'ing Contract." Seems they were right.

"Liberty is the soul's right to breathe, and when it cannot take a long breath laws are girded too tight. Without liberty, man is a syncope." -Henry Ward Beecher
