    Buying drugs with welfare money on one's own can be dangerous. Street dealers can be sketchy. Why are we putting the poor in danger forcing them to buy their own drugs with welfare money? FedGov should just distribute the drugs directly. They can include resource information to rehab facilities in the little baggies.

    Having a scarred back from whipping isn't quite as severe as being gang raped in the shower and then shanked in the cafeteria.

    Anyways, you didn't really read what I said. I think the prison system could be considered an extension of slavery.

    If something's not illegal, it's legal.

    You said that twice and it still makes no sense. How are you going to fine someone for something that's been decriminalized? You can't be fined for not breaking a law.

    Decriminalized means that you aren't sent to prison for doing it, it doesn't mean that it is legal to do it.

    For example, speeding is decriminalized. It isn't legal to speed, but you can be fined for speeding.
