    the problem. The other part and to me much more troubling is the amount of young black men in prison for marijauna. Instead of treatment or no jail time they are sentenced to jail...starting a vicious cycle. Since 1980 so many more people are in jail it is unreal...and such a waste of money and resources. In jail there are no social programs anymore leading to higher recidivism rates and still more wasted money. Blacks and hispanics do not do more drugs then whites, study after study has proven that and I understand you shouldnt do drug but c'mon im sure most people on this board have. Crim justice system is so screwed up it breaks my heart as a soon to be lawyer.
