    How about all the idiots who ensured it remained illegal in the first place?

    Prisons are also wastes of money. Call me radical, but why aren't our landfills being worked by felons? Why isn't our trash being picked up by felons? It is helpful and when they get done with this detainment they wont be as far behind the times and they would be less likely to be repeat offenders.

    Gosh, that sounds a kind of right wing law and order sort of response for someone in favor of legalization. Maybe it really isn't a right/left issue after all.

    Felons do pick up trash, cut grass, fix streets, maintain city lights, signs, clean municipal buildings, do KP in the Senior Nutrition Centers...

    In most small towns down this way more guys wearing INMATE on their shirt do government work than free folk. It has been a blessing for cash strapped towns, and counties here though laid off guys might not think so.

    Now I don't think most citizens would appreciate multiple murderers, child molesters, rapists, insane criminals mowing the grass outside the library or day care center, but plenty minor felons sure are. One day when I went to town all but one man digging up the street to repair a broken water line had INMATE on his back, to include the backhoe operator.

    Because anybody who has been convicted for anything can never ever be trusted with anything else ever again, which is why not only can we not let them do work while in prison, we also cannot allow them to do any work when they get out of prison.

    And wonder why it is that they turn back to crime in order to make ends meet.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    The same people who would do heroin after it is legalized are those same people who would do heroin while it is criminalized.

    There is no interest in rehabilitation once inside because there is tons of money to be made off of return visitors...

    And they could do so much more! If they choose a life of crime the they choose a life of work. Nothing stops misbehavior better than manual labor. They could join construction crews and help carry heavy objects. They could work as cheap labor in factories to help bring industry back. I always say you can't compete with a nation that employs children for 50 cents an hour. Sure you can, employ prisoners for free! As for the repeat rapists, if a batch of them get public execution, it will stop for the most part.
