“Either way, it won’t be a deterrent for getting people to stop drug crime, but I think it’s in the right direction of treating the disease and not punishing the people who are sick.”

“First-time offenders would be scared and would receive education. It would have the potential to lessen repeat offenders, I think, for the experimental drug user.”

“Prison time doesn’t necessarily have an impact, anyway. Prison actually sometimes fuels criminal activity in a way, so I think that’s a great idea.”

“I think it will have no effect. I think people who are going to do drugs are going to do them regardless of the prison sentences.”
