America's prison system is ineffective. Right now there are more than 2.3 million people incarcerated in the United States. More than 30% of those are people convicted of non-violent crimes. By reducing the number of people incarcerated we can focus more resources on reducing rates of recidivism, job training, psychiatric treatment, and drug rehabilitation. Georgia can take the first steps in the right direction. Help us become the first state to adopt an a system similar to that of Germany or the Netherlands.
