Oh the horror – cops and prosecutors not “enforcing” the LAWS

The criminal justice system is the wrong system to address substance addiction. Prosecutors are well within their authority to decline prosecuting certain drug-related charges. Just because a law is on the books does not mean it deserves to have resources directed to its enforcement. After all, adultery and fornication are still illegal in Illinois. You don’t see many people arrested and prosecuted for these crimes.
