This story about a homeless man who made a small mistake (he was in possession of a small amount of drugs) is the sad truth about America's prison system.

It's sad that a small amount of drugs can cause a lifetime of problems. It's really unfortunate that this mans mistake has cost him so much of his life. He was sent away to prison for a long time and now that he's out he has trouble getting a job or an apartment.  We've all heard this story before, but it's really sad to think that the reality of the sisuation can happen to anyone. Sure, you can say "Well don't have drugs on you and obide by the law and you'll be fine", but mistakes happen to everyone. Unless we change the laws on non-violent drug offenses in this country, situations like this will continue to damage society.
