Chris Christie To Unveil Drug Court Plan Tomorrow

Governor Chris Christie
Governor's Office

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie makes a stop tomorrow morning at Rescue Mission of Trenton. After a brief tour, the Governor will be joined by State Attorney General Jeff Chiesa as he announces his expanded drug court initiative which Christie talked about earlier this month in his Budget Address.

In his Budget message, Christie said, “In my State of the State, I proposed to you that, for drug offenders who have not committed a violent crime, we require of them mandatory treatment instead of mandatory prison. I was clear that under this Administration ‘no life is disposable.’”

Full details will, be forthcoming tomorrow, but in his Budget Address Christie provided more than just a clue as to what we might expect.

“To underscore my commitment to this cause, I have included an additional $2.5 million in this budget to establish a mandatory drug court for nonviolent offenders in all 21 New Jersey counties,” he explained. “This will begin to give us the resources to place these individuals in treatment through the Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services – to make this program a reality. It is the first step toward reclaiming these lives and treating drug addiction for what it really is – a disease that can be conquered, but only with effective treatment.”
