My personal belief is that jail does no good for the drug abuser. Sure its a brief time to sober up and get a taste of reality once again. But in the long run all it does is give especially the young a even bigger eye opener into the life of the drug world and its operations. The new ever pursuading group of people that live that life,survive in that life and all that goes with it is absolutely not the place to help stop crime violence and drug problems in skagit county or anywheres. Especially first time offenders or chronic alcohol and drug addicts. And I will guarantee 90% of the jail population is either incarcerated because of alchol and drug abuse. Or severe mental problems and or both. Which lock them up with the offenders that have made that their career in life will absolutely turn them into a complete different person. It only robs them of their spirit and soul. And leaves them to never know who they are or where they really belong. So I suggest the system start helping and stay involved with the young offenders and problem child and get to the core of things before this next generation completely goes crazy and wipes us all out!!!!
