Do you think that people convicted with drug charges be "given" a choice to serve time in jail or be sent to rehab? This shows that the government is failing. Most of the drug charges in the US are for marijuana.

Neither helps. You can't force someone to become sober. They have to WANT it and work very hard at it.

I don't think we should be charging people with possession or use. Just trafficing and such. 

And MJ shouldn't be illegal at all.

I think of people were forced to go to rehab alot more drug addicts would no longer be drug addicts. But it could also work negatively because you have to want to quit. Some might do rehab so they dont ha e to go to jail and think they can just breeze by.

Definitely. Child molesters, for example, get less prison time than drug offenders, which is ridiculous considering the fact that a drug addict can rehabilitated and a pedophile can't. The govt is throwing so many people in jail for drugs when they brought it here to begin with, but that's another story.

so many people goto rehab and it doesnt help when they get back into the environment that they did drugs in but rehab for weed is stupid imo. people get longer sentences for drugs than for murder, its ridiculous.

Rehab for marijuana lol!
People don't puff and go rob others, shoot anyone, rape, any of that crap. More people need to puff. I bet if all criminal/crazies were required to smoke daily there would be less crime.
