I assume you all have heard that Ryan Leaf was arrested again in Montana on burglary and drug charges. He did exactly the same thing in Texas several years ago and got ten years probation. They're going to revoke his probation and put him in Huntsville, and that's before Montana tries him and sentences him. I feel sympathy for Leaf. He got hooked on pain pills as a result of football injuries, got desperate enough to steal them, got busted in Texas, went to rehab and "wrote" a book, fell off the wagon, possibly because he's still in pain from football, got desperate enough to steal them again, and got busted again. His life could be a Robert Earl Keen song. Leaf's going to jail. He committed burglary twice. That's a felony and you can't do that. My problem is the situation. If Leaf could get his fix legitimately under medical supervision, no crimes would have been committed, we wouldn't be spending seventy grand or whatever a year keeping him locked up, and ten years of his life wouldn't be spent miserably behind bars. I wouldn't wish prison on anybody who wasn't a violent criminal, no matter if he was a dick his rookie year or not. Legalize drugs: marijuana completely, anything else under medical supervision. Presto change-o, no more drug mafias in Mexico and no more stupid kids in jail for selling an ounce of pot.
