I think they helped a lot of people that would be doing some hard time if it wasn't for them giving drug users one last chance too stay out of prison.

I wonder now that the funding is cut,(if true)that they will bring in a big truck and start re-arresting those who they allowed into the program?

if drug court is broke doesn't that just mean participants will just have to start paying for their drug testing? or will they do away with the program? it's a state funded program.

Got the money to build a multi million dollars court house, excuse me, justice center, but don't have the money to run the programs these buildings should house. Wise use of funds

Druggies should pay for their own tests! I'm not the one who was ignorant enough to get addicted. Duh everyone knows the risks involved before trying a drug. If you still choose to take it why should others be forced to pay for your stupidity? Guess it's the same logic you use to justify getting that once a month check and food stamps! Good thing I go to work every morning there are so many people that depend on that

I read some time ago that they recived a large State grant for the program.

I wonder why they ran out of money so fast?

And if they don't get more funding,I wonder if this county will be azzes and arrest all the Drug court people?

I wander if 1st offencers like me who would have gotten to do a program will now have to go to prison in stead. Fu#ked up system . if so dont seem very fair. They should make it available to all , all year long . or do away with it .. I bet the judge don't tell people < I'm sorry We would normally try to rehabilitate you but were out of money right now.

'Oh....and if a well connected person in the Community had that same problem they would be 'so-brave' for confronting THEIR drug abuse habit.

Sounds Like You have some Hatred issues. Was your mommy a crack head or something. Did she abandon you. Apparently you know nothing on the topic of drug abuse. Its an issue of treating people equal. If it is offered to one person it should be available to all who fit the criteria. Its not about hand outs So grow up.
