    POT PRISONERS COST AMERICANS $1 BILLION A YEAR

    The latest numbers are out: nearly 800,000 Americans were arrested on marijuana charges in 2005. When will the insanity stop?

    American taxpayers are now spending more than a billion dollars per year to incarcerate its citizens for pot. That's according to statistics recently released by the U.S. Department of Justice's Bureau of Justice Statistics.

    According to the new BJS report, "Drug Use and Dependence, State and Federal Prisoners, 2004," 12.7 percent of state inmates and 12.4 percent of federal inmates incarcerated for drug violations are serving time for marijuana offenses. Combining these percentages with separate U.S. Department of Justice statistics on the total number of state and federal drug prisoners suggests that there are now about 33,655 state inmates and 10,785 federal inmates behind bars for marijuana offenses. The report failed to include estimates on the percentage of inmates incarcerated in county and/or local jails for pot-related offenses.

    Multiplying these totals by U.S. DOJ prison expenditure data reveals that taxpayers are spending more than $1 billion annually to imprison pot offenders.

    The new report is noteworthy because it undermines the common claim from law enforcement officers and bureaucrats, specifically White House drug czar John Walters, that few, if any, Americans are incarcerated for marijuana-related offenses.

    In reality, nearly 1 out of 8 U.S. drug prisoners are locked up for pot.

    Of course, several hundred thousand more Americans are arrested each year for violating marijuana laws, costing taxpayers another $8 billion dollars annually in criminal justice costs.

  • it seems soo illogical???

    it seems so illogical

    how can it be?.... they put braile on baby changing stations (could be messy to say the least), and drive-through ATMs. we park in driveways and drive in parkways. there are so many people in this world, yet the majority feels alone and abandoned. we have a constitution and a declaration of independence establishing our rights, yet we are not free from our own governments, set to protect us. a government of the people for the people and by the people, but hundreds of laws are passed every day without our knowledge by a select few. a person can blame God for the misery in thier life, yet say they do not believe in a god. ignorance of the law is considered no excuse, yet they do not teach us the laws. in fact, to learn the laws, one must be accepted into law school. we have an internet, available to virtually all of us, and still we have politicians make our choice of president. in the last how many years have we had a president elected from a write-in ballot? Ross Perot, (an oil tycoon), can run for president, on the promise to not even take pay, let alone allow lobbyists to bother him without success. yet two George Bushes, ( not commonly known, father and son oil tycoons,) can be ellected president. the internet is considered a tool, but is more commonly used for entertainment, harrasment, invasion of privacy, and destruction. we have freedom of the press, but the truth is only printed in underground newspapers and magazines and back pages in fine print. we have the right to free speech, yet can be thrown in jail for what we say. we can even be thrown in jail for victimless crimes. there are almost as many laws in this country as there are people. we are taught proper reading and writting in elementary, then taught shorthand in highschool. in schools they tell us that Columbus "discovered America", what of the nomads, vikings, eskimos, and Amerigo Vespucci ( not sure of the spelling)? we are supposed to have separation of church and state, can't pray in school, yet can get credits for attending a mormon church for one hour a day in high school. our government spends hundreds of billions of dollars on wars, and rebuilding the countries they destroy, while we have millions of people living below poverty level. we are offered Social Security that is not considered secure. we pay income tax, then sales tax, inheritance tax, road tax, sin tax, (that is correct, SIN tax), fuel tax, state tax, county tax, and even city taxes ( talk about taxation without representation!!!). the rich can keep getting richer, while the poor keep getting suppressed. if the 2000 richest people in the world, along with our governments, surrendered 60% of thier monies to the public, the middle and lower class people could join the upper class on vacations and owning thier own homes and cars, as well as eliminate all debts from the lower through upper classes , (life liberty and the pursuit of happiness). we go to war over oil, when all of our cars could run on our own waste. our governments start wars over pipelines, then claim we are at war with terrorists, (I have lots of info on this subject). how the hell can this be? it just seems so illogical to me!!! are we blind, or just docile, like cattle? well, you tell me. better yet tell a freind!!! oh yeah, let us not forget, we speak english in america, Hmmm!!!
