    Until the judicial system realizes rehab should be mandatory instead of jail. We will be paying millions of dollars for incarcerated individuals

      These guys have been strung out on meth since they were in their teens. No amount of rehab or education would’ve ever fix this. Why they’re on the street now is beyond me.

        Non-violent drug offenders should have to go to rehab instead of jail. Non-violent drug offenders should be in rehab and gun crime offenders should get life if they kill someone and then we clear our jails for the people murdering people. Gun crimes would go down if we just gave people mandatory life sentence. And use better mental health and rehab programs for drug offenders.
