All Rise! Drug courts are now in session

Posted January 6, 2012 by Johnny2x in The Daily

Anyone who has a drug addiction, or even just experiments, and runs into trouble does NOT belong in a criminal prison system. It does nothing but put them in harms way and cost tax payers millions.

I, as a rule, stand behind everything Slash does. Especially this.

ALL RISE! A long overdue concept.

In the USA, there are currently over 2,459 Drug Courts representing all fifty states plus the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, Northern Mariana Islands and 111 tribal drug court programs.In the UK, drug courts are currently being tested in various places.


In Drug Court, these two words have an even greater meaning. These simple words capture the essence of what a Drug Court does. ALL RISE describes how instead of imprisoning an addict, Drug Courts insert hope and support into the very lives of people who the traditional justice system says are hopeless.

Whenever one person rises out of addiction and crime, we ALL RISE. When a child is reunited with clean and sober parents, we ALL RISE. When the intergenerational cycle of drug addiction in a family is broken and healing begins, we ALL RISE.  Whether the charge is driving while impaired, theft, burglary or any number of other addiction-driven offenses, we ALL RISE when a Drug Court guides the offender past the chaos and wreckage and toward recovery.
