New American Style Drug Court in Auckland

Approach to Drugs: New Zealand is not new to the drug epidemic.

Approach to Drugs in New Zealand, American style: However, the wheels of justice turn very slow and the New Zealand legal system is now looking to modernise its approach to the drug epidemic. Just Minister Judith Collins decision to install an American style drug court in Auckland will likely lead to a very beneficial effect on offenders, as it fosters treatment of drug addiction rather than punishment as the main goal.

This, in turn, leads to a lesser likelihood for repeat offenders. Drug courts in the United States have been very successful under American law in reducing the amount of repeat offenders. While the drug problem is not something that has either been solved the the American legal system or the New Zealand legal system, society through law can encourage proper behaviour and rehabilitate an offender to become a meaningful member of society again.
