Why are nurses who have diverted narcotics allowed to be in the monitoring program even when they have been convicted? Why aren't those crimes reported to the board? The public isn't protected if convicted drug thieves can hide out in the HPSP and escape being reported to the board of nursing for discipline. Addiction is an illness. Diversion is a crime.

Hello, legislators -- are you listening? There should be fewer stadium projects, gay marriage bans and nonexistent voter fraud issues to distract you this time. Sit down and start doing the jobs we elected you to do, starting with bolstering these laws and dealing with the snowballing challenges to the indefinite incarceration of sex offenders.
