Just a thought:
In countries and States ( a number of them in usa) where they legalized marijuana it does show a significant lowering drugs crime scene.
Lesser crime, also because marijuana became much cheaper, meaning drugs syndicates lost interest in that line of business.
It also could bring back the number of prisoners in Thailand inhumane overpopulated prisons.
Putting young people for years in such prisons where they have to sleep 'spoon wise' due to lack of space make not they come out from there as better citizens.
Put them in educational work camps, let them partly work, partly follow education programs.
Do this with a point system.
And release them, with a diploma, when they reach their points target.
Make them proud of themselves and self respected.
It works in Singapore.
