Release the innocent prisoners

Here is a link to the story about the U.S. federal government's decision on recreational marijuana.
Although of great personal interest to many of us (see my way earlier blogs), this  decision should become part of a larger push for personal freedom. We cannot forget the innocent, adults and children, who are locked behind bars. They are in prisons and jails in the U.S., they are in Guantanamo, they are in secret prisons around the world (America's gulag) ...
Now, sticking to today's announcement on marijuana, letting Colorado and Washington states' pioneering laws and constitutional amendment (Colorado)  stand should be equivalent to admitting that all prisoners across the country who are incarcerated for a crime that is now legal in those two states should be immediately released.
