According to the Huffington Post, around 50% of prisoners in the Federal prison system are the for drug offenses. The largest number of offenses dealt with marijuana, which is the most acceptable illicit drug in today’s society. I believe that people should have the right to do drugs as long as they do not interfere with the rest of society, which would be along the same lines as alcohol with drinking and driving. Although, people who traffic drugs and sell them in large quantities should face charges, but not as serious as they are today. Getting rid of sentences for drug offenses would reduce a large amount of people in the prison system which reduces the incarceration rate, and it would save the governments money because they would not have to house the inmates.
