Twenty-five-year-old Weldon Angelos celebrated Christmas in federal prison this year ... just like he'll do every year until he's 80.

Last month, Angelos was sentenced to 55 years in prison for selling marijuana to undercover police officers. As U.S. District Judge Paul Cassell pointed out at sentencing, that's more time than he would have received if he had hijacked an airplane (25 years), beaten someone to death in a fight (13 years), or raped a 10-year-old child (11 years).

How goddamn ridiculous. No victim was to come from this man's infraction of the law....I repeat, THERE ARE NO VICTIMS!!!

The war on drugs sole purpose is to put as many people in jail as possible, and it has been very successful.

You should look at how the prison system makes most of its money. The sad fact is: most people are worth more to the state sitting in jail then out working.
