David Carrington on Drugs
Education will lower drug use & need for Medicaid
Carrington was asked about the state's two primary funding issues--Medicaid and the prison system. For both issues, Carrington said the answer was simple--education. "When I talk to a company, they say they're looking for workers who have a high-school
degree, can pass a drug test and will show up for work," he said. He explained that if more Alabamians are educated, their chances at a better quality of life increase and thereby reduce crime rates and reliance on social services like Medicaid.
