    Or harsher penalties for use and for distribution of illegal drugs... get more of the scum off the street... prosecute all criminals and don't baby them.. enforce 3 strikes

    makes it better for the law abiding

    I really do not think decriminalizing drugs is going to help CA. Druggies was one of the major reason I moved my children out of California in 1979.

    They may want to look at a better form of punishment for them other than just lock-up.

    Well...it isn't like the stoners haven't been warning you all for decades now that we cannot kleep making criminals out of essantially law abiding citizens.

    Now watch, they'll release violent criminals before they'll release hemp dealers.

    Make a note of it, remember I told you that this will probably happen.

    I have no problem with the decriminalization of pot. Outside of that, I'm not sure I want Meth, Heroin, and drugs of that type legalized. I do think we have gone down the wrong path by inprisoning users, even when they are repeat offenders. Our money would be much better spent paying for their rehab.

    Bottom line, I agree that our prisons should be for violent criminals only.

    It doesn't work, and the cost is astronomical. $35,000 per year pays for a lot of rehab. I realize that not everyone is successful with rehab, but it's still a better way to go.

    You don't realize how liberal a position that really is, do you?
