So many use drugs for recreational use, even with the health risks, just like cigarettes and alcohol. Understanding that we keep these drugs illegal, those that use them should be punished. However I feel like justice is served with a shorter sentence. Nonviolent offenders are only be kept from using the drug. During their sentence, treatment could be issued to them, hopefully reducing use in the future. Also, keeping them in for a reduced period of time, will save tax payers so much money which could be used for infrastructure, education, etc. Thank you for reading and please consider reducing the minimum sentence for nonviolent drug offenders.
