Drug Offenders: War on Drugs a Failure

The following letter from my friend Don Seibold appeared in response to my letter which was published a few days ago.

Drug offenders: War on drugs a failure

The recent letter about a way to save Alabama taxpayers millions of dollars yearly by releasing nonviolent drug offenders is spot on.

The so-called “war on drugs” has been a miserable failure that has cost our nation’s taxpayers probably billions of dollars — if not more — of wasted money. It’s past time to stop wasting our money on a failed effort and to use it in a more productive way, both nationally and here in Alabama.

Don’s letter also appeared in today’s Mobile Press-Register

I hope that if you are reading this you, too, will write a letter.
