    This is what the prison system looks like in a country that doesn't have insane drug laws and isn't arresting people for looking at a cop the wrong way.

    Silly Dutch. They should have just rented them out to us.

    I'm pretty sure that you'll find that very few people are incarcerated just for drugs. I don't have any stats but I'm pretty sure that if you find them you will also find that drug charges are only part of the deal. For example, the cops show up for a domestic squabble and then find that one of the squabblers is on parole for a drug offense, has firearms in the house even though they have a prior felony, has drugs and paraphernalia in the house, etc. Their sentence (assuming conviction) would be due to ALL of those charges and not just the drug charge.

    The other thing you'll run into is that someone will get probation for a moderate drug charge (possession of an ounce of coke) or a short sentence and parole but then they get hooked up again while on parole. If your sentence on the original charge was 2 years and you serve 6 months with 18 months probation then during that 18 months get popped for something else you're going to get a longer sentence the second time.

    Dear Wooden Footed Folks: How's about an annuity? You get the prisoners to work. We'll pay an annuity in perpetuum. Good deal. The longer you keep 'em, the more they're worth. Affectionately, US

    Dear Gun Owners and Cousin's Uncles

    We outlawed slavery decades before you did and we prefer cash. We realize you may not be familiar with these unique customs, but that's how we do things around here.

    Sincerely yours

    Dear Nether Regions: Well then, you absolutely didn't milk every damn thing out'n your slaves while you had 'em. We did. Let me direct you back to the stock option for a sec. We have some solar companies here that are backed by the gubmint. It's a sure thing. Why, hell...They're gonna flood the market with cheap, and we're talkin high class, solar panels. What's to lose? It's all up. Better take it. Better'n cash. Last chance. If ya haven't noticed, we got us a corner on the prisoner market. There's prisons evrawhere. Sincerely, Loosin interest, but a happy US
