The funny thing is, the American criminal justice system is so broken that most of the offenders aren't convicted or can't afford a competent lawyer. So whether a criminal deserves this or not is secondary. As humans, we have to be reasonable.

The funny thing is, there are many prisoners in that facility that are about to be charged with possession of a plant that 25% of the U.S. population is allowed to grow in their backyard.

No you cannot. It must be in a locked and secure section separate from normal living areas and cannot use natural light because glass or plastic 'roofs' are considered insecure by police and the courts. Marijuana is still treated as contraband but allowed cultivation as long as it still pads the pockets of grow suppliers for lights, fans, heat shielding etc. You don't want the AC bill for even moderate grow. But the power company is glad to take your massive grow light and refrigeration electricity fees. 'Murica we will make it quasi legal to keep our police, fire, school and private business coffers full. Private citizens are lucky tomatoes are legal to grow outside, they are already illegal anywhere but a back yard out of view of the HOAs, nit picky building inspectors and code enforcement. Freedom only applies in unorganized land areas far, far away from zero tolerance modern society.

Yes, that is also so true. Now with legalization, the Govt. should also reduce or negate prison sentences for a few joints or pots of weed. Damn Federal Govt.
