programs.

And now, let me conclude with some general legislative
recommendations. Those of us who represent you in government must be made
aware that drug addiciton is a medical problem rather than
a legal one and is best handled by avoiding complications
associated with criminalizing the addict. Legalization
should stress treatment as an alternative to incarceration.

government to increase formula funding to sattes for implementation
of state drug abuse programs. And certainly, on the other side,
the states must dedicate themselves to continuing the programs
started by federal funding.

For my part, I pledge to try and convince my collegues in
the Georgia General Assembly of the need for progessive legislation
in this area.
