I made a mistake, and for my entire life I will suffer for it as a felon. There is just something uniquely wrong about that. It's not like I killed someone, I didn't even make anyone bleed.

I think the idea of controlling the drugs better will take out a MASSIVE wedge of prisoners out of prison and into good care thats focused on that.
Once you weed out the users from the real bad guys (sorry bad pun), can you effectivly help the actual nutcases the way they need.
atm its more of a "throw them in the same pot" scenario, once again bad pun. teheheh

Oh god, don't get me started on drug addicts and our prison system. What a crock! All "drug offenders" who are jailed should only be in there if a CRIME was committed as a result of the drug use. Even animals get high in the wild. It should be our right to try and feel good however we like as long as we don't harm others.
