NO! No one should make a profit off of prisoners.
NO! There should be no incentive to put people in jail.

These private for profit prisons push for toughter drug laws to put more people in prison & they are guarenteed full cells in many states they operate in & that also leads to more unjust anti drug laws, especially marjuanna as it's an easy bust. Cannabis makes people less aggressive not more like alcohol.

We must end private for profit prisons & this unjust, human rights violating war on drugs & take cannabis off the drug schedual.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann’s collected works are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America."
Van Jones, cofounder of and author of The Green Collar Economy
From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
