Morris88 said:But one thing ARon claims is that low level, non violent drug offenders are sent to jail for long periods of time. This is a complete fallacy. Generally, police and prosecutors do not care or want to deal with low level drug offenses. Besides being a waste of time, it also takes up too much room in the jails and costs hours of pointless paperwork. On top of that, it wouldn’t be the police putting these people in jail, it would be the judicial system. Anyway, I felt that this needed rectified.Two facts:
- While the United States represents about 4.4 percent of the world's population, it houses around 22 percent of the world's prisoners.
- About 1 of 10 prisoners in the US is in jail for a minor drug offense (e.g. possession of drugs, or minor trafficking of marijuana)
Based on these numbers, it seems clear that the US judicial system is really eager to put people in jail for minor drug offenses. So how is what ARon said a fallacy?

YES. I only just realized the scene with Angela in her wedding dress, where she says "You're not Elliot, your the M..." is both in S01E04 and in S04E13. She also says "you were born only a month ago" in that same (S01E04) episode, but we all assumed he was just tripping from the drugs.
