(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) A newly proposed California bill would provide financial benefits to methamphetamine users who stay sober.
SB-888, introduced by San Francisco Democrat State Sen. Scott Wiener, would expand Medi-Cal treatment options, including programs that motivate meth users to stay sober by offering vouchers or cash.
The bill “intends to make these programs accessible on a wider scale by authorizing them to be reimbursable by Medi-Cal,” according to a statement from Wiener.

Wiener described the effort as a “proven method to help people get & stay sober.”
