I'm challenging the government in court and I'm wondering: How well does incarceration do against other methods of dealing with drug abuse? What data/ideas do we have?
I will be challenging the justice system on their drug laws in court within the next 2 or 3 months. And no I’m not in any trouble myself.
Specifically, I want to show that the practice of incarceration as a response to substance abuse is inhumane and ineffective when compared against other models of dealing with addiction and substance abuse internationally.
Please help: What data and research have you come across that can help me with my case?
Have you seen any hard data on Portugal/Poland’s decriminalization program?
Do you know of other countries/states that have similar or other non-traditional methods of dealing with abuse that demonstrate greater rehab success?
Any links, arguing points, infographics or ideas that you could share?
