Treat addicted cons to reduce crime
I have been advocating for increased use of treatment programs for prisoners. Just over 900 prisoners (out of the more than 13,000 who needed it) were sent through a
program last year that has been proven to reduce recidivism by more than half, saving the state money, and reducing the number of people who are victims of crime.

Making marijuana business legitimate
Chiang formed the Cannabis Banking Working Group to explore options for banking and regulating an industry that could produce more than $6 billion in sales by 2020. Chiang said the lack of banking options have made paying taxes, paying vendors and
employees, and granting benefits, such as health insurance, more difficult. Businesses have dealt in cash, an invitation for violent crimes. Chiang said business owners shouldn't have to decide between their safety and profit.
