Well, that's what Representative G. Ralph Davenport, Jr., of Boiling Springs, SC thinks. You'll recall that he's the same guy who wants to use the threat of arrest to prevent people from using dildos.
Section 24-3-20(A) of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 406 of 1996, is further amended by adding at the end:
"Notwithstanding another provision of law, the department may enter into agreements with foreign countries for the confinement of inmates convicted of drug related offenses or offenses related to the sexual abuse of children."
I'm not sure if it's more offensive that Rep. Davenport wants to pay foreign governments with histories of human rights abuses to take America's drug users and do whatever they want to them, or that he equates drug users with child molesters. And a la the HEA Aid Elimination Penalty, he wants to let murderers and other rapists off the hook while punishing drug users as much as he can.
One wonders what the good people of South Carolina's 37th House district think of their representative's work in the capital lately.
