What Do You Do With Drug Users… Jail ‘Em Or Treat ‘Em


I think this vid is interesting enough to pose a question regarding The War on Drugs. Should we put drug users in jail or into treatment programs. I want to highlight 90 seconds of the Honorable Judge Joseph Donald from this clip (5:30 – 7:00).

Donald talks about trailing, nailing and jailing of drug offenders in the criminal justice system. What are your thoughts about the solution to The War on Drugs and if we should criminalize the actions of those who abuse drugs?
