    I don’t like druggies roaming my neighborhood so keep them locked up.
    Or send them to Clark’s trailer park.

    Less time spent busting guys smoking dope would leave more time for the police to check out criminals roaming the neighborhoods and stealing other peoples stuff.
    A win win even for guys we don’t like.

    The nation where ‘Freedom Rings’ has more of its citizens incarcerated by percentage than any other country on the planet. An industry is being built around these men and women as corporate run prisons compete with oversea companies to provide products and services at prices with which few American companies can compete.
    With little hope for rehabilitation, redemption, or a future career following their release, most of those released use the skills and relationships forged in prison to become real threats to society. The majority of those released, are back in prison within 5 years.
    This isn’t just about legalizing drugs, it is also about creating a society where each child grows up feeling that he/she will be a welcome part of a society that will appreciate them and the efforts they make to make of themselves, better people.
    It is sad that ConGov seems to feel that our prisons are being under utilized and permit people he considers to be ‘druggies’ to walk his streets. It would be interesting to learn what paradigm has created this mindset.

    Possession of consumer amounts of pot have been de-criminalized for decades. No one goes to prison for "smoking"pot. This whole argument is a red herring. The point is…. get criminals out of jail and voting Democrat. Period. Next is allowing convicted felons to vote. Again Democrat. Morin is a shill carrying the Democrats water.

    “What a bummer … getting weed cut with parsley flakes…”

    Yeah, but it might stop that not so funny animal tranquilizer lacing that goes on.

    If we allow those who do small amounts of drugs to walk around, at some point there will be no concern of repercussion to one’s own actions. Many say that weed does not effect the way a person functions. That is incorrect, if it alters the way the mind works, it is then altering their ability to function properly. Many of those who have been prosecuted are not the ones that have a joint or two. I have been witness to those who show lack of enthusiasm after smoking, they also went on to feel the need to get high more often. They say it takes away the worries and pain from life. How is that good? Isn’t that what alcoholics say? I was injured at work by someone who had done weed earlier and was in his comfort zone. That caused him to not be attentive of his fellow employee that he was helping at the time. I don’t say that they should be incarcerated, I just do not buy the assumption that it is not an issue that people are altering their minds with drugs. If we are not supposed to drive or operate heavy equipment on legal prescription drugs because they alter ones ability to respond in time, what makes you think it is different for those who use weed? Not everyone reacts the same to all things.

    What?! But we all know that anyone found guilty on drug charges is criminal scum! Why, as that paragon of American values, Rush Limbaugh, once said: “And so if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up.”
    …and by that logic, I fully expect Rush Limbaugh to be accused, convicted and sent up.

    A google search of academia websites could give you the biochemical reasons some people fear/resist change, or progression as you call it. We are most comfortable with what we ‘know’ especially as we mature. Fortunately, there are many progressives in our nation, some are Ds, some are Rs, but all try to think independently.
    @ onguard – The most dangerous place in the world is a friendless community. Drugs are abused by all parties, races, classes, religions, and cultures. Prescription drugs especially.
    @MStevenson58 – The lesson of Dr. Seuss’s Sneeches has nothing to do with drugs.
    The scenario you present is only one of a many. Good people make mistakes and for whatever reason end up in prison. Most prisons do not have resources to protect good people who must now deal with bad people, perhaps even lifers. Most prisons/states do not have the money to provide educational tools to prepare prisoners for their return to a skeptical, even hostile, work place. Not all people put in prison are criminals, and not all criminals are evil.
    And sadly, it is not criminal to be evil, as long as you obey the law – just…as…it…is…written.
    And who is writing the laws?

    Look around, not working at this time or else America would not have this prison population problem.
    Looking reality in the face and blinking.

    I wish I understood your paradigm, Onguard.
    Standards and Disciplines… be more precise, sir. What standard do you set and for whom? How is discipline to be applied? It should be taught by parents but underpaid, overworked parents are not home to teach the standards and discipline you demand.
    If in my efforts to find rational solutions you feel I am making excuses for behaviors, you are wrong. Understanding a problem does not mean one approves of the problem. I would love to see a link to some site that tells me the Standards you would set and the type of Discipline you would impose. Then I can consider the extent to which they might work.
    You say my ideas would ruin a society.
    The methods of those you support, combined with the hubris of the Democrat leadership, is ruining our society and dividing our people.
    Where are you solutions, sir? You are quick with the judgmental opinion or insult, but like the republican party itself, you rarely provide an alternative idea of substance.
    So harsh.

    Try Standards and Disciplines. They work every time."

    Sure… it’s working great! Now, if we can just lock up the gum chewers & people who don’t pick up their dog’s poop, our society will be perfect.

    “I don’t like druggies roaming my neighborhood so keep them locked up.”

    You mean like this guy?

    Rep. Kip Smith spent the hours before his DUI arrest last week with two other state lawmakers being entertained by three lobbyists, including one for brewer Anheuser-Busch, state records show.

    And if you think your neighbors don’t do hard drugs, you’re hopelessly naive.

    “Define “non-violent”. Does a pick pocket or a car thief qualify?”

    Yes, those are non-violent crimes & is a clue to understanding the problem. The prison overload has been driven by mandatory sentencing for drug violations. Judges can use some discretion when sentencing a pick pocket, or even a violent offender in many cases. As a result we often see lenient sentences on non-drug offenders.
