Build schools not prisons. Hire teachers, not guards. Tax dollars are being wasted on nonviolent people.

10 and 20 year mandatory minimum sentences for non-violent drug possession are inhumane and cruel. They effect the inmate, his or her family, and his or her community. Our country has more incarcerated adults and youth than any nation in history, possibly excluding Stalin's Gulag adventures. It's time we start taking our place alongside the civilized nations and treat our drug addicts and mentally ill as the sick people they are, instead if having policies that are best compared with Adolph Hitler and Stalin. We are better than that.

Individuals being taking away from their family getting sentence to too much time without chances to realize whats wrong and whats right,(drug related )that they are not intentionally trying to harm any one. We all have our likes n dislikes to make us feel good in the inside as human,we all have to follow to become something. We need some type of support as well to over come.Outrageous time is giving to those whose not doing no harm to other humans,and not truly given any time to do a turn around with their self,sending them away wont help but pushing them to strive for their kids life,(papers) not that bad)(real support), to make those who dont have the support feel like humans,for users and not the dealers, will help we need some type of push when we get un balanced in life. No one should b poor in US,so we do as needed but no one wont realize life when they get sentence too much time in their life..We should b helping each other gain for our Country for the future. It would save money to us all as well,the ones thats not harming others sentenced to too much time,is a waste.
