House Speaker Ralston: Maybe We Should Rethink Drug Policy
Speaker of the Georgia House, David Ralston, told Morris News Service that perhaps its time that Georgia rethink its drug policies:
“We’re going to have to start a discussion, I believe, about our policy in terms of how we incarcerate people in Georgia. I’m not sure where that discussion ultimately will lead to,” Ralston told MNS.
“We’re spending a huge amount of money locking people up that have drug problems,” he continued. “At some point the people of Georgia have a right to ask if that’s an appropriate way to spend their tax dollars.”
“I’m just using drug problems as one example.”
