What laws did they have in the USSR like what could you do and not do ?

And if you did break the law what was the punishment for breaking that law ?

That's a pretty broad question. I am guessing there were thousands of laws, with varying degrees of punishment. Not surprisingly, like every other society in the history of mankind...

That's a blatant lie. Marijuana was quite common despite that it was heavily legislated against. And many of the Soviet Soldiers in Afghanistan got hooked on Opium.

Marijuana grew in the south by Chechnya but most Russians saw no interest in it and the milicia strictly enforced the laws not like in America where half the kids in a school aare potheads.

Afghanistan was not a socialist country and is one of the world largest producers of opium. In the USSR and other socialist countries, many citizens did not know about drugs.

I never said they never broke the law. I said most people didnt smoke pot and committ crimes. Look at USSR crime stats very low. Dont confuse it with Russia's stats now.

No I dont but its quite obvious for someone who lived in teh USSR. If you live in Detroit you can say a lot of people are criminals who smoke pot. However if you live in Montana you can say much less people are criminals who smoke pot. Soviet dont try to contradict everything I say.

Those stats were often "doctored" by investigators and bureaucrats to deliberately keep them low, from several sources I've read. Crimes of passion were basically supposed to be the only ones committed since "...no Soviet citizen would have economic or social reasons for committing criminal acts," i.e., the whole "worker's paradise" line.

Coupled with the fact that I just finished Martin Cruz Smith's Gorky Park which, although fiction, was one hell of a good read. The protagonist is Arkady Renko, Chief Investigator for the Moscow Militia. I saw the movie once long ago and had forgotten about it till I got to the end of the book. OK, enough off-topic.

I'm not sure I dont work in the MVD. However we dont have the death penalty just lengthy prison sentences.

Don't forget one fact: according to Soviet laws, HOMOSEXUALISM was punished by SEVEN YEARS IN PRISON.

Smoke pot? Can shoot you for that.
