I guess they have too much time on their hands and access to law books .Should they be allowed to use the court system? .They probably would not have done this outside of prison?
Cigarettes have their mandatory warnings of, "This product causes lung cancer", etc.
So, we already have precedent.
Next will come a mandatory warning on all alcohol, "Warning. This product causes stupidity."
I predict it will happen within 10 years.
Maybe we should tattoo each babies arm within hours of birth.
"Warning: life causes stupidity but you are still responsible for your actions"
We could all look at it each hour, for a lifetime.
