Prisons

29 Sep

The United States has more than two million people in prison, The most in the world in both size and percentage of population. More than China which has 4 times the population. More than South Africa during the apartheid.

Solutions = Reduce Prisoners  As one prisoner can cost the state up to $50,000 this adds up to great savings.

Decriminalize Cannabis. Amnesty for all prisoners incarcerated for possession. Make prisons more reformatory, educate prisoners, in general knowledge, and a trade. End recidivism. End the raping in prison.

Prisons are currently unsustainable. Schools and Prisons can grow their own food and manage their own waste.
