More support for Prometa:

Congratulations to the Federal Way City Council for approving the drug initiative utilizing the Prometa program.

Although new and under some criticism, drug treatment should be on top of everyone’s priorities and certainly the need for such programs should be the compelling factor.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to create a drug-free America. We are very foolish if we think we can achieve that by arresting and punishing those who use drugs. We must teach our children not to get involved with addictive, intoxicating and harmful substances and we must have treatment programs for those who are already addicted.
