    Nancy Reagan's just say no....doesn't appear to be working.
    Heroin OD's are everywhere, cities & rural area's.
    And the private prison industry and the judges and politicians they have bought would fight tooth and nail against it.

    But no, the private prison corporation will pour billions of dollars into the pockets of politicians to prevent that from happening.

    Another Rightwinger who thinks freedom is so worthless that losing it is a "sweat deal".
    The sweet deal is breaking the law and then getting taxpayers to fund your entire existence not only room and board but free medical and the huge cost to keep your worthless criminal ass out of society.
    If your response to me is couched in insults and is derogatory and juvenile in nature don't expect a reply.

    Not because of any belief that drugs are that dangerous, but because decriminalizing drugs hurts their profits.
    How would that hurt someone's profits if their job is to pay a handful of prisoners to farm crops?

    Yeah, what a sweat deal! No freedom whatsoever, (*)(*)(*)(*)ty food, constant threats of violence, no privacy, medical care that would be considered third world outside of prison. What isn't there to love?

    Drugs are not the only minor offenses that put someone in prison. And all drugs will never be legal. Some will be decriminalized, but there will always be illegal drugs- thus prisoners.

    Not enough to keep private prisons in business.

    No it's not. Private prisons make most of their money from keeping low level drug prisoners.

    Yes, coke head and crack heads. Two drugs that will never be legal.

    This is in regards to federal prisons, so obviously private prisons are another story. However, coke and crack are the more serious problem with repeat offenders in any prison. That crap will never be legal.
