"California Connected," a weekly, hour-long newsmagazine produced by PBS stations in Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego and San Francisco that covers state events and issues, tonight will include a segment that examines the effectiveness of Proposition 36, the voter-approved ballot measure that allows many first- and second-time drug offenders to receive treatment rather than prison sentences. The segment includes profiles of two state residents who received treatment under the law.

The program will be available online after the broadcast (KVIE release, 7/26).This is part of the California Healthline Daily Edition, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
