Addiction should never be treated as a crime. It has to be treated as a health problem. We do not send alcoholics to jail in this country. Over 500,000 people are in our jails who are nonviolent drug users.

I so agree. So many of the guys I worked with in prison were there for drug offenses. IMO the govt was simply wasting money by keeping them in prison.
