Lets decriminalize it All

In 2001 Portugal decided to eliminate the low level drug possession charges, therefore eliminating the intake to prison systems for minor offenses.  Since the U.S. prison system is SEVERELY overcrowded, maybe we should mirror their model. With 50% of the U.S. inmates incarcerated for low level drug offenses, WE can ELIMINATE the overcrowding issue with ease. #decriminalizeit
