I think, maybe, that common sense is finally coming around.


then where will prisons get their labor?


On the contrary, there is a *ton* of value in it. The prison labor business is worth billions of dollars and makes a lot of companies a lot of money.


i’d be curious of the financial impact of decriminalizing Marijuana. All I read about is the taxable benefits for the states/fed. Has anyone found other softcost annualized potential savings? For instance, how much reduction in policing/enforcing; court; job drug test rejections and so on.


When the dispensaries start looking like Apple stores it’s time to let a whole lot of people out of prison.
