Radical change is coming by way of Colorado! Three cheers for Colorado yay!

Source



The Colorado Department of Corrections is now allowing inmates to grow and consume recreational marijuana, in accordance with state law for the rest of the population.


Well, Colorado is changing the world. I like it. Now they will learn a palatable skill that will enable them to assimilate back into society doing something that most of them can probably accept and find joy in. Hopefully this will lead to a more reasonable mindset and help lower recidivism rates. Not only that this will act as medicine for many who suffer from mental illness including PTSD among other things.

Great! I think im going to start saving for a move.

This is actually really smart move on the part of Colorado Corrections.

They can squash part of the black market in those prisons.

Wow I'll read the link later but if true that's unbelievable. It's about time they realize a stoned prison population would make everyone's day a little more relaxed

Maybe itll help stop some violence in prison by creating a less stressful and relaxing environment.

Its a great coping mechanism for the very traumatic environment weve create in our massively over populated system.

It would be an interesting study as to how much it reduces violence in the prison?

Just what I was thinking. Not only that. They will now have a "kinder, gentler", medicated prison population. Food costs will most likely go up though.

I'd rather the food costs go up than the amount of bodies, assaults from prison life.

Prison Warden Tom Norton told the Rocky Mountain News, “We’ve already seen a decrease in violent crime within the jails. Snack food contraband is up 300 percent but that’s to be expected. We will continue to monitor the marijuana program but so far so good.”


Bwahahahaha.... but violent crime down is a positive.

Not if you need to keep the place full.

It will give inmates something better to do than fund black market smuggling and help with sleeping.
Violence will decline. Good move Colorado.

This is the stupidest thing I've read today. They're in prison for a reason, why give them such luxuries?

Yeah they're there for a reason.

To make private corporations a bunch of cash.

Most of the offenders are in for non violent crimes, related to possession or stuff like tax fraud etc.

Must be nice to judge a whole group of people without any kind of detail behind what put them there.

Kind of a bummer if you are in prison for smuggling or dealing marijuana..
