End imprisonment for possession of marijuana. use alternate consequences, and free prison beds. Save the states money and save young citizens' lives.
Why is this important?
Once young people have been imprisoned, their records are smeared for ever. No longer can they apply for jobs, housing, funding, without being labelled "undesirable" and denied their benefits. Prison is for those who are a danger to society. The punishment is out of proportion with this "crime". By not imprisoning them, many people would get a second chance in life and it would save the States lots of money.
