Life without Parole for nonviolent Cannabis conviction

http://blogs.riverfronttimes.com/dai...efforts_co.php



Efforts to release Jeff Mizanskey, the only man in Missouri serving a life-without-parole sentence for a nonviolent marijuana charge, are continuing this month with help from Show-Me Cannabis and Change.org.

Show-Me Cannabis has bought billboard space on I-70 near Kansas City (and near Sedalia, where Mizanskey was arrested). The billboard features a photo of Mizanskey and says: "Life without parole for cannabis? It's time we fix our unjust marijuana laws."

Jeff Mizanskey was convicted under Missouri's "Prior and Persistent Drug Offender" statute, the only drug-specific three-strike law in the country. Each of his felonies were for marijuana, the largest being approximately six pounds, which he didn't even have on him. To read the details of Mizanskey's story, go to: How a Missouri Man Could Die in Prison for Weed

It is, in essence, a death sentence... over laws that shouldn't be that harsh in the first place, regardless of what a heedless fool he is... "whats wrong with this guy? second strike in Missouri? time to get the hell out", I get that.

But still, LIFE for a petty drug, in any amount, is garbage.
No, it's not a death sentence. It's a "we guarantee he can't reproduce" sentence.

Like I said, I am a big advocate for legalization and reforming ridiculous marijuana laws. But let's not pretend that all this guy did was get caught with some weed.

He's clinically stupid AND his entire case is counterproductive to the REAL change we need. The mainstream media and main street politicians just picked up another bullet in the fight AGAINST what is just and right, thanks to this moron.

You have 2 choices Mr. Mizanskey, spend your life in jail or give up citizenship and leave the U.S. forever. Which is it?
Not a bad idea. Continue to break the rules and we'll ship your ass to Afghanistan.

I wont disagree with any of your basic points, but I still think life in prison is way over the line.

People who KILL other people during DUI's don't get LIFE sentences fer cripe pete... six pounds of weed < human life.

Your issue is with laws which mandate life imprisonment, then, not with the weed laws.

Just legalize it already. All this shit is so senseless and a waste of taxpayer money.

It's a new economy and this country needs to think outside the box. Legalize it, tax the shit out of it, and lets move on to other things.

US has more prisoners than all the other listed countries combined, and the country is still not over capacity.

Here is the incarceration rate (prisoners per 100,000 population)


Here is the incarceration rate in the US over time

Also check out this one - Florida guy lets his buddy borrow his car not knowing he was going to rob some lady of a pound of weed. Somehow the 18 year old daughter of the drug dealer dies, and the guy who let his friend borrow his car is charged including the felony murder rule and has been in jail for 11 years already serving life without parole ! That's ****ed up.

Link to follow.

Never said there would be no downsides but considering the disaster prohibition has been everywhere it has been tried in every category I think I can safely say that legalized drugs would be less harmful then continuing prohibition.

Thats like saying a lady finger and a stick of dynamite have the same level of danger.

At some point you have to use common sense.

Weed? OK legalize it.

Meth, coke, and heroin? **** no.
