12. And if not prison, they had no problem with making life extremely difficult

via criminal background checks and ridiculous probation fees/requirements.

I'm very straight edge and don't do any drugs or have any criminal record, but I've see these counterproductive laws ruin people's lives. They help put these people in such desperate situations that it only increases their chances of going deeper in drugs and perhaps even criminal activities. I'm sure some places around the country handle this better by not destroying lives, but it doesn't seem to be the norm as far as I can tell.
