We support the wider use of drug courts to handle the overwhelming number of arrested addicts, many of whom are also small volume dealers supporting their habit. Judges are in a position to determine which of the offenders they work with might be amenable to treatment. Drug courts should be adequately funded to provide effective in-patient and out-patient treatment for addicted offenders, with adequate long-term follow-up testing backed up by the credible threat of incarceration.
