Drug use is a decision by the user — not society

Mr. Sargent’s suggestion that “it falls upon society to provide an effective rehabilitation program for drug-law offenders” fails to address the fact that it wasn’t “society” that chose to make the offender do drugs, it was the offenders choice. The cost for a rehab program should be paid by the offender. Perhaps personal responsibility should be part of the curriculum.
