Record-High Ratio of Americans in Prison Feb 28, 2008.
This was released to Associated Press

For the first time in U.S. history, more than one of every 100 adults is in jail or prison, according to a new report documenting America's rank as the world's No. 1 incarcerator. It urges states to curtail corrections spending by placing fewer low-risk offenders behind bars. We have been talking about this for years, and many of these are low-risk offenders. It was bad enough previously and now worse than ever, and ruining society. In fact, the California Health and Hemp Initiative 2008 would improve that situation.

Are they serious? We think the benefits will be much greater.

This was an article from oaksterdamnews.com

A new (at the time) Hemp Museum opened its doors at 2017 N.
