Help a friend, send him to jail, says a billboard in Ventura, California. This is an example of the zero tolerance campaigns inform-on-your-neighbor tactics being used to enforce the laws against the victimless crime of cannabis smoking.
Heres another example from TV: If you have knowledge of a felony you can earn up to one thousand dollars. Your name will not be used and you will not be required to appear in court.* One man received a postcard in jail saying, Our informant received $600 for turning you in. Crimestoppers.
*(Crimestoppers, Ventura, California, October, 1989.)
