Do drug offenders benefit more from treatment than incarceration?

If you choose to use alcohol or drugs illegally and are arrested, you may face serious fines, penalties and lifelong consequences. Conviction for DUI in Tennessee can mean anything from license revocation to a year in jail, depending on how many times you have been arrested before. As you face the reality of a future with a criminal record from DUI or a drug offense, you should know that many believe treatment may be more beneficial for those in your situation rather than imprisonment.

If you bring medical marijuana in a state that does not sanction its use, your prescription won't provide a defense.
