Eric Deaton on Drugs
Q: Do you support programs that provide prison inmates with substance abuse treatment?
Q: Do you support reduced prison sentences for non-violent offenders?
Q: Do you support mandatory prison sentences for selling illegal drugs?
A: No. Educating and rehabilitating prison inmates to stop the cycle of crime in their lives will make them better citizens and more productive to society in the long run. We should work to stop this endless battle against crime in the repeat offenders and give them other options in life. In the long run this is a cheaper option than just locking them up over and over again.
A: Support / make sentencing & rehabilitation appropriate.
