Brian Schatz on Drugs
There are at least three reasons to implement this creative idea. First, it provides an environment where rehabilitation of ice abusers is the goal, unadulterated by the needs of other, presumably more hardened criminals. Second, the federal government will contribute a percentage of the cost of building and maintaining such an institution; and third, the chronic, severe shortage of prison beds Hawaii faces can be partially alleviated by this plan.
I urge the governor and the Legislature to consider Schatz's innovative idea.
