Many courts have “drug” court and similar programs designed for offenders who have serious problems with substances and other problems (mental health, juveniles, etc). These courts give additional resources to these offenders so that the underlying problems can be addressed. They are, for the most part, wonderful programs. And Snohomish County’s program is getting a major funding boost.
The Edmonds Beacon is reporting that a grant that was requested for the program has been granted to fully fund the Drug Court.
