Ca Drug Proposition

California voters will be asked to decide whether non-violent drug offenders should be required to undergo treatment instead of going to jail. Proposition 36 would mandate probation and treatment instead of jail and would provide millions of dollars to fund drug treatment programs. Supporters say it would be more effective than jail, opponents believe the measure doesn't provide adequate monitoring. NPR's Ina Jaffe reports.
