I wonder who owns stock in the private corps running prisons in our country?
This industry called the war on drugs won't go gently if it's up to them.

A game WA. State has played laity is kicking folks off food help.
My daughter who has cerebral palsy. She in her mid twenties ,a part time collage and lives off
SSI. That's $735.00 a month. $84.00 in food help. Her rent is $565.00 a mo.
DSHS is notorious for telling people that they're information to continue
food assistance never arrived. This is also happening to others that are in the same boat.
Long mess short. She losses food assistance for two months. I wonder just how much
Money was not used for the good of the citizens of our state.

And while I rant
I would love to see in my lifetime the day when all these poor souls that are in prision
When they never should of been convicted in the first place. All the damage that has been inflicted
on so many families due to prohabition laws.
This sick part is it targets.. The poor. The folks that can't afford a lawyer
Sorry for ranting, my blood boils over injustice

$84/month is less than 3 bucks a day.  Wow what a generous contribution. :deadhorse:

You know the situation better than me Lakegal7 but a lot of people on SSI also qualify for Section 8 housing assistance which caps their rent at 30% of their income.

Lakegal you're not ranting so much as expressing righteous injustice. I heard about people routine sayong that paper work never arrived, now I understand this is standard operating for Human Services across the country. A way to save $ @ the expense of those who need it the most.

Private prisons are not a good thing as business is always about the bottom line, $$$

Section 8 housing assistance is terribly underfunded and only so many housing units in any one area. A person with no car must find housing close to work and/or school.

I feel righteous indignation caused by the lack of compassion social workers show, they stick their noses in where they don't belong and cause many problems with their zeal and tragedies occur due to not doing their job. Social Workers are quick to remove a child if the parents use weed, breaking up families while other children go hungry. We have had two teen age girls die from starvation in foster homes in 2 months in my town, social workers never prevented.

We recently got a med marijuana bill passed and signed but it needs a lot of improvement to really work. I hope thing move forward to full legalization.

Spooner, I've never even thought about it on a daily basis, Now I'm pissed
From now on, whenever we send anything to DSHS, it will be a certified mail.
I need to quit whining and look into other programs like the section 8 housing.
There are some great helps out there, but they sure don't advertise..

Heirloom, private prisons makes me think of the term
" the fox watching the hen house"
These cut throat bastards are the true criminals

Social services is an oxi moron
Saw a program on vice t.v. About a poor mom trying to get her kids
back in Kansas I believe. Talk about a sick twisted system..

Sorry riseabovethought
This forum is about Trump and cannabus
As for Trump and cannabus
I think he needs a real strong indica to knock him on his ass
so he could shut up and have some introspection time
I know it would do him some good and the rest of the nation
