I think mandatory rehabilitation sentences would be far better than prison sentences.

@9H4WS85Republican from Colorado answered…2yrs

No, all non-violent drug-related crimes should be dealt with only with rehabilitation, less punishment

@9H6PY6JTranshumanist from Georgia answered…2yrs

It depends on the drug. If it is weed, no. But if it is meth, yes.

@B4KZ7SXTranshumanist from Georgia answered…3hrs

No, I do not support any kind of mandatory minimum prison sentences

@B4HZWPGAmerican Solidarity from Utah answered…6 days

yes, only those who don't use while driving and only for personal use

@B4HTRGQGreen from Wisconsin answered…6 days

Yes, but only for drug dealers, not users. We should develop prison programs toward rehabilitation rather than punishment.

@9H48VRYPeace and Freedom from Pennsylvania answered…2yrs

This is a tricky question. It would need to be case by case based on amount and intent. Some people possessing a substance, although illegal, are suffering with addiction. They should be sent for treatment rather than right to jail.

@9H4822SWomen’s Equality from North Carolina answered…2yrs

It depends, stuff like marijuana shouldn't but more extreme stuff maybe a month. If its moderate then rehab

@9H478LTAmerican from Nevada answered…2yrs

No, they are oftentimes nonviolent crimes and nonviolent offenses.

@9H446F7American from Ohio answered…2yrs

Yes but only for drug dealers and other options should be reviewed first. Like a judge can waive criminal charges if the person completes rehab

@9H3ZG5WWomen’s Equality from Ohio answered…2yrs

not for marijuana, but people using other drugs should serve a mandatory minimum, and then be directed to rehabilitation services for addiction

@9H3Z3VDWorking Family from Texas answered…2yrs

Depending on the type of drug. For example Marijuana should be legalized whereas methamphetamine should be treated as is

@9H3Z3MDRepublican from Ohio answered…2yrs

Mandatory jail time for dealer and mandatory drug treatment for users. If a crime is committed mandatory jail time.

@9H3XFX8Women’s Equality from Ohio answered…2yrs

Depends on the drug. Marijuana should never lead to a prison sentence.

@9H3WJMCIndependent from Wisconsin answered…2yrs

If they can show a change and commit to rehabilitation programs and therapy following their realer I believe an earlier release would be ok.

@9H3V75MWomen’s Equality from North Carolina answered…2yrs

Yes for the real drug dealers, the people who have airplanes and boats and bring the drugs into this country. Street dealers wouldn't have any products to sell if the real criminals were prosecuted.

@9H3SWP7Peace and Freedom from Colorado answered…2yrs

If a sentence helps someone get clean and better themselves

@9H3SVK4Veteran from Tennessee answered…2yrs

I trust the judge in specific cases to give a rightful sentence and get the help for the dug users that they need to never go back to them

@9H3RRLWDemocrat from Hawaii answered…2yrs

No, I think sentencing should be based off of number of offenses but for a first offense sentencing should be minimum mandatory sentencing. Each subsequent offense should increase prison time.

@9H3RKNRDemocrat from North Carolina answered…2yrs

I support using these ideas that involve multiple offenses similar to the three-strikes law and probation or parole but repeat offenders.

@9H3QGNHWomen’s Equality from North Carolina answered…2yrs

@9H3N7D6Transhumanist from Georgia answered…2yrs

Yes but it depends on the drug and if its a drug dealer and help them stop taking drugs

@9H3MX3YLibertarian from Virginia answered…2yrs

@9H3J665Democrat from Kentucky answered…2yrs

I believe this is situational for mass quantity dealersnof narcotics, opiates, controlled substances, and drugs not legalized anywhere in the country

@9H3GHNTIndependent from Alaska answered…2yrs

Yes, but we also need to find better ways to help drug users/dealers to cope with their addiction, and once they're clean expunge their records so they're not dogged by those the rest of their lives

@9H3FVSQDemocrat from Texas answered…2yrs

It depends, I believe someone who has been caught with marijuana should not be serving a 10 year sentence or any prison time. When most states have made marijuana legal. I think for opioid, cocaine, heroin and people using hard drugs should be sent to a rehabilitation center, doctors who know what is best for those people and not punish them in any way.

@9H3F7VFVeteran from Wisconsin answered…2yrs

Legalize all’s drugs and instead of incarceration send the individuals to rehab

@9H3CK7QConstitution from Ohio answered…2yrs

Depending on the drug or the amount of drugs possessed while arrested

@9H3CF74Working Family from Michigan answered…2yrs

@9H3C2KCWomen’s Equality from Illinois answered…2yrs

There should be a mandatory punishment but it depends on the situation if that punishment is prison.

@9H3BPNTSocialist from Kansas answered…2yrs

i think a person shouldn't be convicted for a long time for a substance they are choosing to take. they should be required to enter into rehab but i would say a minimum of 2 months

@9H38CXNWomen’s Equality from Minnesota answered…2yrs

depends on how much they had, if they had a small amount then yea i'd say a good couple months, but if they are in possession of like a lot of drugs or smuggling then i'd say like about a year or two maybe 3 years depends on how much they had like i said

@9H3757NSocialist from Alabama answered…2yrs

Yes, if they are using it to help them self's. Meaning weed, and pain pills anything other than that no.

@9H36XP8Green from Florida answered…2yrs

It's a symptom of a larger problem. They shouldn't be punished because the system failed them.

@9H36FGFConstitution from Illinois answered…2yrs

@9H36CPHSocialist from Wisconsin answered…2yrs

Legalize all drugs, most use drugs because they are illegal. It's seen as tempting or the forbidden fruit. If the allure and temptation is stripped away then drug rates will go drastically down. As well as stockpiling people in prison for minor drug charges. Portugal did this already and its successful. They did the same with prostitution.

@9H35R9VPeace and Freedom from Texas answered…2yrs

No, only if the drugs led the individual to cause violence.

@9H34V65Green from Hawaii answered…2yrs

Drug dealers should be arrested but there should be a facility to help people stay off drugs and out of jail.

@9H34T8GPeace and Freedom from North Carolina answered…2yrs

@9H32QVFGreen from Virginia answered…2yrs

@9H2ZNVXWorking Family from Pennsylvania answered…2yrs

Yes, for drug dealers and users, unless it is a medical drug.
