Drug courts are a relatively new phenomenon in the American judicial system. Define and discuss briefly the philosophy, role, and short history of drug courts. Does the state in which you reside utilize drug courts, and if so, how successful have they been in reducing recidivism rates? Would you in turn recommend that all of the states utilize these courts to assist in processing drug cases? Support your viewpoints from your readings and other appropriate outside sources.
