Consider This: Drug War and Non-Violent Offenders

With an average of $30,000 per year among the states, the total cost looks like about $90 million to keep these non-violent offenders in the can.
How many of them would be threats to the public safety?

Granted they may not have violently hurt anyone. But how many lives & families did they destroy in the process? How many of their fiends mugged or killed someone so that they could get their next fix. I agree sometimes the penalties are too harsh, but we sometimes lose sight of the bigger picture.

These "non-violent" offenders are life long criminals with huge amounts of convictions. These guys deserve to have the key thrown away. At some point the justice system has to say the hell with them and put away for good. It makes the rest of us law abiding citizens safer.
