Too many in jail?
Probably. But I think that Katie Grant should have examined how many people are in jail for committing victimless crimes. The state has no business telling people what they can or can't do with their own bodies. Our ludicrous drug laws - not the drugs themselves - are the cause of so much crime. Let's also concentrate on making criminals compensate their victims and indeed reimburse the state for the costs of detection and trial.
