Most such jurisdictions get very excited, though, if that underage 
drinker kills someone while driving drunk.  Ofttimes, that gets _real_ 
police attention, rather than occasional bouncer investigation.

Make each recieved spam be worth a buck to the reciever, and the 
spammers/phishers/etc will be facing felony charges.  I suspect much of 
the spamming would stop.

Some, of course, would continue.  Pyramid schemes still get proposed, 
but their scope is much smaller.
