Pfft, why waste money on battered women?

Topeka, Kansas is considering decriminalizing domestic violence in order to save money. I don’t care how big your budget problems are – this shouldn’t even be up for debate. Even if you’re looking at this from cold, Machiavellian reasons, it costs the state more money in medical aid and lost work hours to let women (and more rarely but not negligibly, men) keep getting abused.

But legalizing marijuana? What a preposterous idea!
