Pot and Prison



Thadeus Greenson's masterful job ("Spoiler Alert", NCJ, Nov. 16) covering the cannabis issue left out one major player in resistance to legalization: the incarceration industries. Add to that the corrupt legal entities involved, and you get a pipeline quite capable of sucking a large portion of our citizenry off the streets and into tiny cubicles paid for by the same populace that wants to legitimize marijuana in the first place.

Just one more instance of the anti-people policies of our Republican officials and the pervasive distortion of the vote-against-your-own-best-interests of the ignorant.

P.S. I liked the vignettes — what a nice idea.
