Most of the arrests are drug related. Even the few arrests involving theft are likely drug related. The domestic abuse and battery arrests likely involved drugs or alcohol, too. The irony is that throwing these people in jail for a few days or weeks really does almost nothing to address the core issue of addiction. Instead, it piles on to their already unhappy life situation and drives them further into their abuse. The criminalization of addiction is ineffective and inefficient use of our tax dollars and resources. These people need more effective treatment, or else this cycle will continue. The real mess at hand is that that Pinellas County has a staggering number of prescription opiate junkies. They are all around us, in all walks of life. Now it has become a popular campaigning theme to shut down the pill-mills and doctors who will write prescriptions for their own financial gain - as if that will solve the problem. Anyone who thinks that making the drugs harder to obtain will make it too inconvenient to continue their addiction is somebody who is clueless about addiction and never experienced it with a loved one or personally. Throwing people in jail for a few days, or shutting down the pill mills does not do anything to make them quit. What I see happening with the pill mills shutting down is an influx of organized crime funded by heroin dealers that will swiftly take their place. There is no clear solution here.
