Default What is the law regarding FRS/GMRS transmit power

FRS or GMRS? Or is it a free for all where an individual can use the GMRS side of the radio (understanding that he needs a license, but as we all know likely doesn't have one (due to the $85 fee), still on the same freq but now increases his power output and therefore steps all over the FRS user. I guess there is no clear answer to this question. Sorry I asked it.
There is a very clear answer. Without a GMRS license you must follow the FRS regs which include operating on the lower power setting.
