Judges Opt for “Drug Courts” in Non-violent Cases. Check out this awesome post about a solution to the Drug War. Thanks for your tireless work David. I am in favor of drug court compared to prison sentences for low level drug addicts. I have seen some amazing examples of drug addicts recovering and getting back on their feet. The program is incredibly hard and tedious. The offender has to jump through so many hoops like, show up to court every week with requirements such as job search proof, required meetings for sobriety and other mandatory actions. All of that work toward a new life is a far better alternative to a prison sentence where violence and gangs take over as a form of survival. Speaking from experience here.
