Klivian: Well if you stop putting people in jail for smoking pot, the total number of criminals in the system would go down, right?
lewismarktwo: But if we legalize cannabis then rich old white men might have to admit they lied.
Igor Jakovsky: Klivian: Well if you stop putting people in jail for smoking pot, the total number of criminals in the system would go down, right?Thats bad for business in a privatized prison system.
sodomizer: ...since potheads aren't a drag on society or anything.
Thats_right_ALL_the_tea: Maybe they'd finally just chill the hell out. Also, might get a few folks to switch to weed from bath salts and lower the number of face-eatings.
Bruxellensis: The problem I see is with the voting demographics in Floriduh.[encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com image 183x275]"What's that? You want to legalize the devil's weed in MY state?"
Pick: It would be good for Florida, because they would have more room in the jails for those caught driving under suspension, people who write bad checks, identity thieves, tweekers and shop lifters.
redlegrick: It's never gonna happen. Lawyers make too much money defending cases, fines, fees, and seizures keep too many municipalities afloat. The government (or if you prefer, gubmint) finds it convenient to make people criminals. Add in privatized prisons and the industries tied in with that and keeping pot illegal is a very lucrative process.
EWreckedSean: Lol John Morgan as a family man and very Catholic? I mean I'm all for what he is doing, but John is the town celebrity drunk. Remember his DUI arrest video? Classic.
