Drugs and Negligence

It's okay to jail people for life on a 3-strikes charge for carrying around recreational drugs.

People who refuse to vaccinate their offspring against communicable disease walk free.

Something is askew in the moral intuitions underpinning popular jurisprudence.

At the very least, anti-vaxxers should be liable in tort (negligence, perhaps). At the most, drug "offenders" should be open to prosecution for selling adulterated goods (or maybe to minors).

In the twinkling of twilight, I try to tell myself that the US is not class- or race-conscious. These are the lies I whisper to help me fall asleep under the merry dance of the stars.

Do you have suggestions on where we could find more examples of this phenomenon?
