Decriminalize drugs to help patients

Decriminalizing all drug use is part of the solution to ending the opioid epidemic. We need to stop treating addicts as criminals, but rather as people who fell victim to a horrible disease. Rehabilitation is beneficial to their recovery; incarceration is not. I hope to see a statewide effort to decriminalize drug use so that we may help these people, not lock them up.
