IdahoRocks on HB 516

IdahoRocks offers up another perspective on House Bill 516, currently stalled in the Idaho Legislature.

IdahoRocks has a post up tonight outlining the relevance (and increasing irrelevance) of both the Department of Justice and the Drug Enforcement Agency in the continuing war on drugs and how these departments are being overlooked in the current discussion as Idaho looks (quite daftly) at current drug laws. These agencies are being neglected as are the judicial powers of sitting judges who do not have the option of choosing treatment for nonviolent drug offenders over incarceration. 

My letters to Representative Clark and Senator Darrington urging that this legislation be unearthed and heard in committee are on their way. Are yours?
