Legislative Support for the Batterer’s Intervention Program

Batterers Intervention Program (BIP) is a type of program that aims to help individuals who have been convicted of domestic violence or intimate partner violence to stop their abusive behavior and prevent future incidents of violence. BIPs are typically court-ordered, and participants are required to attend a series of group sessions led by trained facilitators.

The goals of BIPs are to hold batterers accountable for their behavior, help them recognize and take responsibility for their actions, and teach them nonviolent ways to resolve conflicts and manage their emotions. BIPs typically involve group discussions, education about healthy relationships, anger management skills training, and individual counseling sessions.

Research has shown mixed results regarding the effectiveness of BIPs. While some studies have found that participation in BIPs can reduce the likelihood of future violence, others have suggested that BIPs may actually increase the risk of violence in some cases. It is important to note that BIPs are not a one-size-fits-all solution and that individualized treatment plans that take into account the unique circumstances of each participant may be more effective.

Legislative Support for the Marijuana Legalization Reform

Consuming or smoking marijuana is a victimless crime. It should not be illegal to have a choice, especially when it comes to people choosing marijuana over booze. In every state or major city where marijuana was legalized, the economy has decreased crime and boosted the county or city funding for projects throughout the state. The taxes and city dollars generated from taking marijuana off the streets and out of the hands of drug dealers and into a controlled environment will help Wichita, and other Kansas cities generate some of the additional funds necessary to clean up downtown and make Wichita a more beautiful, safer place to live.

Even Forbes Magazine mentioned in 2020 that the legalization of Marijuana has helped keep the economy afloat and thriving through a downturn.
