This is one area that I disagree with Republicans. I think in a time when we are trying to roll back regulations to save money, we would save a lot of money keeping people out of prisons for pot use. Prisons cost money also and the more people in them the more money it cost taxpayers. I actually think it interferes with the republican agenda to some extent. Not only does it cost tax payers money for the judicial process and then to imprison these pot users but then they have criminal records as well. That effects their employability after prison.
