Today I was reading a blog entry about someone's adventures in Amsterdam, and in that very public entry she talked about smoking pot in a coffee shop. Can she get arrested for that? Can I really get in legal trouble if I buy Cuban products while overseas? If an 18 year-old were to drink alcohol in a foreign country where that's the legal drinking age, is it a possibility that they're at the same time obeying the law and breaking the law?
Curious George: How long is the "Long Arm of the Law"? I've heard that when in foreign countries, United States citizens must still follow all United States laws. Is that true?
