"Now a criminal justice and drug policy educator with the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California, Moss said the cost of providing services to people would be cheaper and more effective than incarceration.

California spends about $50,000 per year to keep a person in prison and more than $36,000 for County Jail inmates. The recidivism rate is about 70 percent, he said.

"The very basic things one needs is to get back up and start contributing to society," Moss said. "When I learned what the wounds were, I learned what I needed to heal them. Sitting in a jail cell doesn't address that."

Instead of Santa Cruzans calling to "take our city back," Moss proposed, "Give folks a chance to take their lives back.""

Excellent! More, please... and I've got a couple ideas of my own I wish to propose, perhaps at the upcoming meeting of that new community safety committee. There is a solution here that will benefit all members of our community, including those suffering from addiction. The best part is, whatever that solution looks like won't involve the criminal justice system. That is to say, as long as we want a viable solution...
