Growing marijuana instead of prisons January 06 2015, 0 Comments

Great story from about a jail that might be transformed into a marijuana farm.  It's hard to imagine rationale people arguing this is a bad thing, especially when the people we're no longer locking up were simply non-violent drug "offenders".

In a related sign of the apocalypse, NYPD officers staged a protest (over people pointing out that some cops who actually do really bad things are bad and should be punished) by only making absolutely essential arrests.  The result was a 95% drop in the arrest rate.  So they stopped arresting for minor drug offenses and amazingly, New York City survived.

I think we can see the tide turning (finally!) on the decades-long and long-ago-lost drug war...
