Tommy Chong: Cost of Prosecution

We heard a lot this morning about many of the cases we've been writing about on TalkLeft--one item that really stood out was how much the Government spent to prosecute Tommy Chong: $12 million. What an outrage.

Update: Drug War Rant tells us what $12 million could provide:

  • $12 million would pay for treatment for 3,500 drug addicts for an entire year.
  • $12 million would pay for enough needle exchange programs to prevent 1,258 HIV infections.
  • $12 million as a direct grant to me would stimulate spending in my household and help the economy.
