Getting Smart on Meth

SD is starting a program allowing diversion for first-time meth offenders, depending on amount, no priors, and no major collateral offenses. It’s outpatient, though, and, although the “co-pay” may be low, it may also limit the impact. At least officials there realize that there may be an alternative to knee-jerking to jail. [While in CO, as Pam Clifton at Think Outside the Cage informs us, prison pop pressures have some folks there moving toward early release programming.]
