Prescription for Prisons
Prisons are a paradoxical public policy failure. The more prisons we have, the more crime we have, and the less justice we enjoy. All too often, crime is a manifestation of addiction with its inevitable fraud and violence. What should we do? We should find new solutions to addiction that naturally curb our craving for addictive substances. In my experience, this can be accomplished through dietary modification, by following a balanced, organic, non-addictive, lacto-ovo-vegetarian diet. Addiction is a sickness that needs medicalization, not criminalization.
