Imprisoning People In The USA

Our criminal justice system needs a complete overhaul starting with prisons and jails.

A man in a southern state has been sentenced to a year in jail. One year. His alleged crime was smoking weed while camping in a wilderness area. Yes, he was smoking marijuana. Not selling it, not driving while under the influence, not doing anything but fishing on a riverbank with a buddy and smoking a joint. He might be a really hardened criminal who also didn’t have a fishing license.
