Monday on the Chad Hasty Show, Vikrant Reddy, Senior Policy Analyst for the Center for Effective Justice of the Texas Public Policy Foundation, spoke about the decriminalization of marijuana in light of Governor Rick Perry's recent comments on the issue.

Last week, Governor Perry told the public he believes marijuana should be decriminalized, and each state should decide separately on the issue. Reddy noted that incarceration may not be the best solution for nonviolent crimes, including possession of marijuana. He believes rehabilitation treatment can be more productive and cost effective than incarceration. However, Reddy said, "I don't think we will see legalization in Texas any time soon." More information can be found on the Right on Crime website.
