New JPI report on dealing with drug offenses in Maryland

As detailed in this press release and this Washington Post article, a new report from the Justice Policy Institute finds that "Maryland continues to spend far more on sending drug offenders to prison than to treatment programs despite a high-profile bid by Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. to reverse that trend.  This new report, which is entitled "Progress and Challenges: An analysis of drug treatment and imprisonment in Maryland from 2000-2005," is available here.
