      The supposed intent is to clear out all the low level offenders who, because of zero tolerance policies or mandatory minimums, even for lesser crimes, have spent years and years in the can. Of course, this is the .gov, and they don't have a great track record of accomplishing their goals, unless it is related to removing more freedom from the average taxpayer.

        Sure...the Leopard will change their spots.

        What do you think these crack-pot heads are going to do once they get out, work at Mickie D's? People forget these clowns are incarcerated because they cannot conform to society's rules, and repeatedly offend. I know of none that are sentenced to prison unless they have worked real hard to get there. I think it would be a mistake to grant clemency, at least not until the majority of their sentence was served. I agree the crime rate would definitely increase. But what do I know?

            This argument is wrong, because it is circular.

              A pretty good chunk of crime in this country revolves around marijuana, whether direct or indirect.
