This reform is imperative for drug offenders especially. Most drug offenders (who by the way get harsher punishments than sex offenders and rapist) have an addiction problem that needs to be rehabilitated. Giving them drug treatment and shorter sentences allows them to address their addiction and return to society with a clear head and tools to combat their addiction. Having them locked up like animals in cages without the tools to get to the root of the problem which is the addiction for lengthy periods of time with others with the same or similar offenses only places them in a position to not only come out as even worse future drug offenders having gained more contacts while in prison to help further their future drug offenses. It also keeps our jails overpopulated, crime rising, and more importantly families torn apart. We have to fix the root of the problem if we want a real change and giving drug offenders the right tools to fight their addiction is better for society. This is a much needed bill that needs to pass.
