Trump's Acting Drug Czar Touts Arizona Program

May 1, 2017

PHOENIX (AP) — President Donald Trump's acting drug czar came to Phoenix on Wednesday to tout an Arizona program that asks addicts to turn in their drugs at the local police department and get treatment without fear of being arrested.

"We have to move away from these either or solutions, we need everybody working together.Through this program police officers are helping people struggling with addiction by connecting them to treatment rather than jail."
