Vermont Quits War on Drugs to try new something new
Wow. We need this openness in experimentation and trying new things to solve social problems.
The people who pushed Vermont’s new drug policies are mindful that the initiatives could flop. “Now we’ve got to pull it off, and we’ve got to demonstrate that it does work, that it is going to reduce recidivism, and it is going to achieve the kind of savings,” says Chittenden County State’s Attorney T.J. Donovan. “End of the day, this whole thing could implode, you know—but I’m not sure we could do any worse than what we’ve done these last couple of decades.”
