To the editor:
Did you know that we are now incarcerating people for having cancer? Kidding! But if we did, our societal sanity would be sapped of any remaining sound judgment. Criminalizing the disease of cancer would be crazy.
Why then, using settled research that tells us that alcohol and other drug addiction is a disease, are we still incarcerating non-violent addicts who pose no danger to others? This is societal insanity. It is crazy.
