Oklahoma: America's Indonesia


The Oklahoma bill making the manufacture of hashish punishable by a prison sentence of two years to life (which Matt Welch discussed on The Alyona Show yesterday) reminded me of a recent story by Joe Donatelli at The Fix: "The World's Scariest Places to be Busted For Drugs." In light of Oklahoma's marijuana penalties—which even without the new bill include two to 10 years for a second offense involving possession of any amount and two years to life for growing or selling any amount—the Sooner State may qualify as the Indonesia of America.
