    During a campaign stop in New Hampshire Wednesday, Senator Rand Paul argued that putting people back to work could help cure the heroin epidemic in the United States. "People always come up to me and say, 'We got heroin problems and all these other problems.' You know what? If you work all day long, you don't have time to do heroin," Paul said. He later said he approves of giving people with addiction problems treatment instead of using punitive jail time. "We need to treat it more as a health problem and less as an incarceration problem," Paul said.
