Drug Offenses

About half of all prison inmates have been convicted of drug offenses. An unsettling statistic that is often attributed to the increased pressure on law enforcement officials to do something about drug use and related crimes. As a result of this pressure, police officers and other enforcement officials may act rashly, even going so far as to violate individual rights.
