The answer is in your sentence here: "I think our jails are full enough and we have no business putting a guy in jail for 20 years over some weed "
Our jails are full we have business.
Somebody is making mucho $ from these draconian laws.
Don't expect them to change, corporations are sacred you know.
There's the real reason right there.
Look at the facts of this piece of...'justice';
Ingesting pot is a private matter for an adult. IF pot is bad for you, the only one who would have suffered would have been the guy himself. Locking
someone away for 20 years hard labour is SO much more damaging to his life than smoking or eating a little weed now and then ever would or could be,
that much would be obvious to even the most mentally challenged among us.
States in the US now recognise that Pot is useful medicinally. It is useful and effective in a variety of conditions, from simple insomnia to
debilitating disease and illness like MS, parkinsons, Cancer, depression, Bipolar and a whole host of others...so where is the justification for
sending a young man to prison for half of his life, when he was essencially only self medicating with a useful natural plant?
He's basically been handed the same sentence as a murderer or child rapist...for half ounce of a natural and harmless plant, recognised as having few
if any side effects and a host of positive effects.
I wonder how much profit money is going to ripped from the public purse and generated by private prisons during this poor guys half a life in
If i were a friend or member of his family, i would be devoting my life to hunting down the connections, financial and social of the Judge and
prosecutors, legislators etc. to the board of the private prisons in the area.
There's BOUND to be yards of dirt to be dug up, and used to bury the bastards using there own crooked laws.
