I find this fact horribly embarrassing for we Americans. It may be an 
even worse indictment than that we pay, like, four times as much 
money for less effective health care than the other top fifteen or so 
countries in the world.

Truth is, a high percentage of our inmates are in jail on 
drug-related charges. The so-called War on Drugs is a real 
money-maker. Hm, anyone know where this particular money trail leads?
