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.”
