0:00 "Legalization Will Mean More People In Jail"
1:30 "For the purposes of bail, you are considered guilty of the charges against you..."
3:20 Joe discusses the miscarriages of justice that happen daily in courtrooms
5:50 "Over 90% of all cases end in plea deals."
9:00 We should be filling these courtrooms. "I would not be free today if it was not for all the court support that was at my trial 2 years ago."
13:18 "Watch a jury get selected..."
14:14 "Even if you are planning to take a deal, if you don't wait until the very end, you've missed at least two opportunities to have your case dismissed." Take it all the way.

(The cheer at 0:52 is for the Anaheim Ducks scoring a goal against the Los Angeles Kings in game 7 of their playoff match.)
