St Louis County Judge Shaun Floerke thinks "treatment court" is much better description than "drug court."
Whatever you call it, it keeps the public safer, has a much better outcome for the drug offender and realizes a huge cost savings for everyone.
But can a new approach to drug crimes fly in the "land of 10,000 bootstraps," where if you're an addict, for instance, you need to "just stop it"?
Floerke says if punishment - or negative consequences cured addiction, there wouldn't be a problem. But it doesn't -- and there is.
