President Obama Could Grant Clemency To Thousands Of Non-Violent Drug Offenders | ThinkProgress
This was reported on Fox news, but I can't seem to find a MSM news report about it?
On one hand it could be good. We shouldn't imprison victimless crimes. If people want to kill themselves doing drugs we should let them. 130k a year, I hear is the average cost to imprison someone. It would be cheaper to give them free drugs at outpatient clinics and let them rot in the streets.
One problem with it is that it could add hundreds of thousands of instant Democrat voters to the rolls.
