Minister McTool is at again. This was taken from the Irish Prison Service website. Follow the link here ( Keeping Drugs out of Prison ) to see the full document. Take a look at this little snippet. It brings a whole new meaning to carrot and stick approach:
"Voluntary Drug Testing Units will be established within each closed prison to
allow those who have given up drugs and those who do not misuse drugs to
reside in an environment that has enhanced supports to maintain their drug free
status. Incentives will be made available to prisoners on these Units, such as
enhanced diet, additional visits, phone calls, letters, etc."
Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
