Scott veto keeps corporate prison donors happy, stoners in jail

Florida governor, Rick Scott, has used the power of his office to keep non-violent drug offenders in private prisons.  Scott has vetoed a popular bipartisan bill that would have allowed non-violent drug offenders to receive treatment after serving half of their sentences.  Scott has attempted to privatize Florida's prisons while he and other Florida Republicans receive large donations from private prison corporations.
