The Heroin Epidemic

One constant in my 16 years of criminal practice, unfortunately, is heroin. As one judge correctly called heroin the "demon" of all drugs, I have witnessed heroin destroy families, empty bank accounts and send once productive citizen to jail cells.

Heroin has been in the news lately. 60 minutes had an excellent segment last Sunday. Take a moment to watch the piece and learn about drug courts. As I have said before, my perspective on addiction changed dramatically when I become involved in drug and DWI courts as a prosecutor in California. As a former prosecutor and now a practicing defense attorney, I am a supporter of drug courts.

Local news channels will be airing segments on this issue. I encourage everyone to watch these segment.  You can learn more about drug courts here
