I'm so tired of my tax dollars going to house criminals convicted of consensual crime.
Frankly I think most consensual crime needs to be de-criminalized. Save the prisons for violent criminals, thieves, and sex predators. Leave the potheads alone.
The fact that alcohol is legal completely undermines any argument as to the "harm" that pot causes. Alcohol is, by far, the most destructive drug I've encountered.
I guess we'll have to wait until the day when tobacco and alcohol lobbyists no longer have a stranglehold on D.C. (so...like...never?). So much money and misinformation is doled out every year by lobbyists who want their vice to be the only one you can indulge in.
I'm 34 and I wonder if I'll see the day when this foolish waste of time, money, and lives is corrected.
Do you guys and gals think we'll see a national decriminalization of pot in the next, say, 40 years?
