(b) As with any other bill, the President has the power to veto the bill.
(c) The effects of the bills relating to substances must not take effect until at least a week after passing.
(2) Once a bill is passed by the Congress relating to illicit substances, it is the job of the Department of Health and the Department of Justice to enforce it.
(a) The Department of Health shall enforce those laws by making sure that the general public is adequately informed.
(i) The Department of Heath must maintain a list on the Forums listing all illegal substances.
(b) The Department of Justice shall enforce those laws by ensuring that lawbreakers are adequately punished.

A
BILL
To

Amend the Illicit Trafficking Offenses Act of 2022

The people of the Commonwealth of Redmont, through their elected Representatives in the Congress and the force of law ordained to that Congress by the people through the constitution, do hereby enact the following provisions into law:

1 - Short Title and Enactment
(1) This Act may be cited as the “Illicit Trafficking Offenses Amendment Act”.
(2) This Act shall be enacted immediately upon its signage.
(3) This Act has been authored by: pepper5980.
(4) This Act has been co-sponsored by: bigpappa140

2 - Definition of Terms

(2) "SoH" shall refer to the Secretary of Health.

3 - Reasons
(1) This Act shall amend the ITO, section 4, subsection 1, due to the following reasons:

(c) It is important to note that the Justice Secretary does not get to decide what crimes are illegal, and neither does the Secretary of the Interior get to decide when a situation is considered animal abuse; both are settled by laws created by Congress. Illicit substances should be no different.

4 - Terms
(1) The following changes will be made to section (4) of the ITO:

From:
