People make money off of crime, plus I am not talking about the criminals themselves! I mean the system, it makes money from jails plus prisons, from fines plus fees plus charges, so basically the laws as we think them are an extension of the tax code — all designed to separate you from your money, but this is the reason so numerous things have been criminalized over the years, when in fact making them illegal was only a means to get more people in the prison system.
Thank goodness marijuana legalization is sweeping the land, erasing this horrific plus harmful prohibition on 1 of the world’s greatest plants; People smoke marijuana for all kinds of reasons, not just getting high, however more than that, most of the people who use marijuana are normal everyday folks, who do it to relieve stress or sleep a little better, so they shouldn’t be targeted as criminals.
People that use cannabis tend to be more kind, gentle, plus generous than other folks, especially people who have been drinking, then i’m not saying that banning alcohol was ever a fantastic system — it wasn’t — but the ban on marijuana was just as bad. It benefited the prison system to have something as commonplace plus widely used as marijuana to help keep all of their jails at capacity, and legalization of marijuana is a good first step, to keep innocent people from going to jail, but the next step is just as important, and both of us need to overturn all marijuana convictions, plus release any prisoners doing jail time over something pot related.
