Scott Brown on Drugs
Republican Jr Senator
A: Well, it's gonna take time you know; you're dealing with a country that has had al ot of tribal leaders. It's a little different than Iraq; [we need to] provide stabilization and protect the citizens from infiltration from al-Qaeda and from Taliban rule. They are basically living in the fifteenth century--not allowing women go to school if you went outside you'd be punished sometimes severely. Just by being there, we're trying to get a handle on the drug trade too. They're growing a lot of wheat and other types, which can stop in the dependence on the drug trade.
Vote on veto override of Section 88 of the FY2004 appropriations. The appropriation in House bill No. 4330 earamrks at least $99,925 for the "Latinos y Ninos" program which addresses the needs of Latino women in substance abuse recovery. The governor's veto message (No. 4365), said "I am vetoing this section because it unnecessarily earmarks the use of funds at the Department of Public Health."
Relevant platform section:Part VI: Safety & Justice: Crime Prevention: "We support increased efforts to work with troubled young people and we support the development of secure substance abuse treatment facilities for adolescents and women."
