Quote of the Moment: US Prisoners

"The United States now imprisons more people for drug offenses than Western European nations imprison for all crimes combined. No human society has ever before imprisoned this high a proportion of its population. It is now so large that if all U.S. prisoners were detained in one place, they would rank as the thirty-fifth most populous state of the Union." ― Johann Hari, Chasing the Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs
