Are these bleeding hearts serious? How about the staff/ guards do 
their job and stop the drugs from getting into the prison in the 
first place? That would seem like an even more cost-effective way of 
fighting the growing HIV and hep C problem. Taxpayers are already 
paying for luxuries for criminals that citizens that follow our laws 
don't get free (cable, eye glasses, dental care, prescription drugs, 
food, roof over their head, etc).

Since the 1970s, we have allowed the bleeding hearts to make Canadian 
prisons into a vacation resort (a free one at that). Criminals have 
not turned into model citizens, they have just become more violent 
and bold, with no fear of going to a prison "resort."

(Have to disagree on that. Sentences may be too light for some 
crimes, but we're under no illusion that prison time is fun time.)
