    Very troubling. They should de-criminalize drugs, let the government sell and tax them. Get's rid of all of the incentive for gang violence because there is no reason to "defend" drug turf anymore. Then people will stop whining about guns, too....

    Time to come out of the dark ages and use prisons for real criminals like they should be.

    re: in-jail awaing trial...those are ppl who can't or won't make bail, or those charged with very bad crimes. Nothing too exciting IMO.

    Agreed--once all drugs are legal, all the drug criminals will become law abiding citizens . :laugh:

    Heh! You know what it is....I don't see any real difference between someone being drunk and someone being high. Now...if someone is driving drunk or high...whole other subject.

    I just think stuff like the Rockefeller Drug laws is really goofy. :2guns:

    while were at it lets just repeal all laws. that way there are no criminals and we dont need any jails. problem solved.

    We can let the government regulate theft. Create an association of thieves, let them steal a certain quota each month. Tax them for a percentage of what they take and penalize the association if they take more than they are allotted. that way they self police themselves. And they can rotate members in and out of the jail system to pay for their crimes.

    We can do the same with murder. We can legalize a group of assasins. Give them a quota of the maximum number of murders they can preform, and let them higher themselves out. Then the government makes money off it in taxes and we have control over who can be killed or not.

    btw if you cant tell im being sarcastic.
