When are we going to quit locking people in a cage because of drugs?

You can send someone to the finest colleges in this country for what it cost to keep someone in jail.

He would have gotten off easier if he had been drunk driving down the highway, endangering everyone in his way and himself.

Now his life will be ruined.

Is it worth it to keep up the prison industry?
