Although drug courts have become popular across the United States, they continue to be a controversial topic. Politically, these judicial interventions may be construed as being “soft” on crime. Proponents of drug courts use science and statistics to help justify their viability.
Using the module’s readings and the Argosy University online library resources, research the definition and role of drug courts.
In a minimum of 300 words, respond to the following:
- Provide a definition of drug courts.
- Explain whether you agree or disagree with the concept of drug courts. Give reasons supported by scholarly research.
Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
