KINGMAN - The National Association of Drug Court Professionals motorcycle relay ride is scheduled to make a stop here next week.

Kingman is the third leg for the riders headed from California to Washington D.C. to raise awareness that recovery from drugs is possible.

At each stop, a gavel will be passed on to local riders joining the pack. The Kingman handoff will take place at 8 a.m. Wednesday, May 2 in front of the Mohave County Superior Courthouse on East Spring Street in downtown.

Assistant Chief Probation Officer Alan Palomino will be one of the local riders headed from Kingman to Flagstaff to attend a drug court graduation at the Coconino County DUI/Drug Court later that afternoon.

Organizers said the ride, dubbed the "All Rise America! National Motorcycle Relay for Recovery," is meant to serve as a reminder that when one person rises out of addiction, everyone benefits. May is National Drug Court Month, and there are said to be more than 2,600 drug courts in the United States.

National Association of Drug Court Professional CEO West Huddleston said that more than 75 percent who successfully complete drug court are never arrested again. He said drug courts combine rigorous drug treatment and accountability to compel and support drug-using offenders to change their lives.

"Drug courts demonstrate that we can reduce substance abuse, crime, and save money, by offering treatment instead of incarceration for those suffering with addiction," he said.

When and Where ever, anyone can achieve a success rate of 75% in the rehabilitation of drug users, in "my opinion" they should not only be given the utmost in praise and support. We should send them to Congress!!!!!

Thank God someone has finally come up with a cure for drugs. I have been waiting since Nixon declared the war back in the 70's for this wonderful day. Maybe now we can stop putting so many people in jail for non violent drug abuse. We have more people in jail than any other country in the world. Now that we have corporate prisons we don't have to worry about a thing, because they do it all for us. All we have to do is pay for them with our tax dollars instead wasting that money on other things like social programs that help the poor and sick. Thank God that this is a Republican state.
