Drug "offenses"? Set 'em free!

As you probably know, I don't "believe in" imprisonment. I would rather aggressors and thieves be shot and killed by their intended victims (or a rescuer) at the time and place of the violation, and I realize that imprisonment doesn't result in restitution or justice.

But, I'll ignore all that for a moment.

Even if someone has done something bad, if they are caged for something else that isn't bad, but only "illegal", they should be let out.

That means even if a person attacked an innocent person, but got "arrested" for (or convicted of) drug possession instead, he should be set free. Force the State's goons to focus on the actual wrong, instead of the easy (and lazy) mala prohibita crap that they usually use.

That would result in fewer innocent people in the State's cages; propping up the State's prison industry.

Yes, that also means more bad guys on the streets (temporarily). It's a necessary trade-off until a free society evolves. And, if actual bad guys attack, "shoot, shovel, and shut up".
