Some things to think about for your “Policy Recommendations” section: (1) How would a public health approach be beneficial for some drug offenders rather than a criminal justice response? (Look into the Three-Pillar Public Health Approach implemented in Vancouver) (2) Should we eliminate mandatory minimum drug policies from our criminal justice system and allow judges the discretion to sentence drug offenders based on their criminal history and other relevant variables instead of imposing harsh and punitive policies? Also, you should spend some time discussing where the funding for these options would come from, especially the treatment and rehabilitation options.
