Reefer madness scared the heck out of that generation.
He thought at the time he was doing the right thing.
Judges make choices. They can be lenient if they want. And it's the law and it was broken argument is weak. To quote Frank zappa the United States is a nation of laws, badly written and randomly enforced. That is very true. We all break laws. None of us are squeaky clean. Speeding here. A seatbelt there. Some more than others. I was not consulted about these laws when they were drawn up. I did not agree to any of it I'm forced to obey via threats of jail. There is no consistency in the punishments. From judge to judge, person to person, county to county the punishment vary. The judge could have chosen a lenient punishment for 311 non violent offenders. # him and his change of heart. Maybe some of those dudes he popped had copd or chronic pain and did not want to go the pull route. Not everyone that enjoys it is a super stoner. Screw him

So he just kept locking people up for 30 years ,311 by his count, because he didnt know there were really benefits to cannabis and he hated it.
