Stephen Fry on American Prisons

It’s interesting that in America we’re so good at criminal proceedings that we lock up everybody instead of ¬†looking at alternatives. Of course we should legalize marijuana which is a major contributor to putting the disenfranchised as well as the just plain stupid in jail–every argument given against it can be applied to alchohol and yet we learned our lesson from prohibition on avoiding black market crime. There’s no perfect solution but a black market sure doesn’t seem to work.
