Description

An insightful look at the Hennepin County Drug Court shows that it has not reduced the number of people incarcerated for drug offenses, nor has it reduced recidivism rates. According to the story, the state's largest drug court has actually increased the number of people prosecuted on drug charges by 50 percent. And most of those people are poor, inner city minorities.
