Inmates on Drugs

A new study in Hennepin County, Minnesota (Minneapolis) found that 70% of inmates are on drugs at the time of booking.  This article from the Minneapolis Start Tribune discusses the study & the problem.  A very interesting read for those who deal with jail inmates, or are interested in the problem of drug use/abuse and its connection with crime.

Thanks to Professor Roger Baron from The University of South Dakota School of Law for passing along the article.
