    I tried to find the text of the bill, so I could read it. Even congress.gov doesn't seem to have it. By the name, I am taking an educated guess that this is for sex traffickers who end up being forced into prostitution and forced to take illicit drugs. Anything we can do to help, survivors of trafficking, to heal and recover, we should absolutely do. It's a basic concept, that if someone is being held hostage, forced into slavery, they are not of their own free will. The perpetrators should carry the punishment of the crimes they force others to commit. That would be the truest justice.
