    only controls FEDERAL facilities.  That's the Bureau of Prisons.  They DO NOT control state or local government jails or prisons. And 2.2 million people are not in jail mostly for pot.  That's ridiculous.  We have way too many people in jail, I agree.  But some are there because of violent crime, and some are there because they were drug dealers and gang members who are seriously scary people. After 20 years of criminal defense, let me tell you a lot of people are rightly serving time for really bad things.

    It took three years because it's the feds. The Bureau of Prisons didn't take ALL of the Muslim texts, according to the Huffington Post.

    Koby's lawsuit was way premature.  But that's Koby. I do think they have to follow qadministratrive channels first (yeah, it's BS, but that is true of most attempts to get into federal court, you have to deal with the administrative agency first).

    We do not rent rooms to Republicans.
