Re: “Heroin 'Epidemic' Focus of Summit

Law enforcement thinks by stopping and lock up a bunch of addicts is going to help clear up this epidemic and that is just not so. Yes, it is much easier to lock up the user but they create other problems; overcrowding jail and prisons, break up families for twenty years and causing financial ruin for families, but no one offers solutions. Even if the county sheriff's office, MPD, detectives and the Federal government are given names, addresses of the dealers and pushers they still do nothing. The young addict is setting in jail/prison life wasting away with each passing day making it impossible to get a job when they get released and become a productive part of society and taxpayer. Another thing even when these first time offenders do their time for the crime; they carry a scarlet letter with them wherever they go to apply for a job (Felony), why is that necessary? They are paying for that one mistake for the rest of their life. There needs to be some brainstorming and discussions on these topics.
