Those projects would create jobs. Those jobs would give the people working them a reason to stay clean and somewhat sober.
I'm sure there would be drug testing involved to make sure anyone still abusing these things would not stick around, thus giving them yet another reason to stay clean and somewhat sober.
I say somewhat because hey, weekends ya know.
Instead, Mrs. Clinton wants to throw ten billion dollars at treatment centers and shit like that.
Here's a hint honey, when people can't find jobs to support themselves and their families, they turn to drugs and alcohol to dull their feelings.
But hey, we get it, anything except those pesky Emails, right?
(CNN)Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign announced a $10 billion plan to "combat America's deadly epidemic of drug and alcohol addiction" on Wednesday.
The plan looks to boost treatment and recovery programs, ensure that first responders have drugs needed to stop opioid overdoses from becoming fatal and urges states to focus more on treatment than incarceration.
"It's time we recognize that there are gaps in our health care system that allow too many to go without care — and invest in treatment," Clinton wrote in an oped about the plan. "It's time we recognize that our state and federal prisons, where 65 percent of inmates meet medical criteria for substance use disorders, are no substitute for proper treatment — and reform our criminal justice system."
The bulk of Clinton's plan will focus on $7.5 billion in new federal-state partnerships to boost local treatment programs. According to the plan, if a state proposes "a comprehensive plan" for dealing with addiction, that state can receive $4 of federal support for every $1 they put up.
Clinton's plan would also direct state Attorneys General to prioritize "treatment over incarceration for nonviolent and low-level federal drug offenders." Clinton's campaign argues that the savings to the criminal justice system would be used -- in part -- to pay for the plan.
What the fuck, it's all phony money anyways.
I hear they are warming up the presses for another run.
