Officially known as the Substance Abuse and Crime Prevention Act, Proposition 36 was passed in 2000. Prop 36 is a law that allows both first- and second-time drug and alcohol crime offenders to attend state-regulated treatment programs instead of being placed in jail. Only simple, non-violent drug crimes qualify for Prop 36.
