Or spend a couple weeks with a few bikers who were broke and looking to extort the first person they could. Besides, it's going to come out eventually.
I guess it could have been worse and I'm not implying that jails in California are great either. They might have separate areas for gays BUT when you get a group of 40-50 gay people (typical dormitory) there is always someone who wants to run things/drama/fights. Unfortunately, like a lot of things, jail is just something I have gotten used to - it's as bad as everyone says and worse but one thing it hasn't done is help my drug problem, if anything it makes it worse, just thinking of all the fights and arguments that I've seen while in jail makes me want to go get some heroine so I don't have to think about it anymore.
It makes just as much sense as calling jail "treatment" for any non violent "crime" including giving away drugs. And if you weren't violent before going to jail at the very least you will have a high tolerance for violence when you leave b/c jails are operated either by the threat of violence or more likely it's use. There is a reason why fights in jail not only go unprosecuted but are encouraged - violence is looked at as an acceptable means of control so long as it's not used against staff. And the general public for the most part not only accepts but also encourages it (enter all the jokes about dropping the soap, ect ect). The hypocrisy of our judicial system is just mind-boggling
