<< California voters's decision to provide drug treatment instead of jail for the state's estimated 24,000 non-violent, minor drug offenders makes the state the first in the country to mandate and fund drug addiction treatment as an alternative to prison, Nadelmann said.

&quot;In terms of the broader drug policy reform agenda, this is almost certainly the most significant thing to happen in terms of reversing the tide on the war on drugs,&quot; he said.

Those opposed to the measure, led by California's prison guard unions, said it was a de facto decriminalization of hard drugs. Proponents, however, maintain that treatment will be a far more effective way to handle the state's drug problem -- and will free up some 10,000 jail cells for violent criminals.
