Not every punishment fits the crime. We live in a world of unequal enforcement of the law and punish some victims as criminals. The power of the pharmaceutical industry, chronic pain, and opioid addiction lead many to turn to non-violent crime and ultimately prosecuted as criminals. Let's give the legal system options; it's time we stand together and treat our fellow New Mexicans as victims of addiction and deliver on compassion, care, and treatment everyone deserves. It's a slippery slope for so many with one of four New Mexican adults falling victim to opioid addiction.
