8. I wonder how much they could save each year
by declining to arrest or prosecute Marijuana based offenses, including declining to participate in federal operations of the same type, and by granting early parole or commutations to people in jail purely on MJ related charges?

Might be a less destructive area to start cutting first.

Also wonder if the armies of riot cops sent after protests effects that bottom line. I know most of them are local, city or county, but does the state contribute money to local coffers, the way the federal govt contributes to the states?
