This state is bankrupt, both morally and financially, and it never ceases to amaze me that no matter how much debt spending the state piles on, all the drones go around wanting the government to tax and spend even more.
We already have the country's largest prison population. The prison industrial complex doesn't need any more money. It needs less inmates. Legalize drugs, don't imprison people for victimless crimes and voila, prison problem solved.
