Trump Declares Public Health Emergency on Opioids: 'As Americans, We Cannot Allow This to Continue'

In August, we wrote about President Trump's promise to declare a national emergency to combat the opioid crisis. And we wondered whether we'd attack the opioids or the people, in the "war on drugs" sense: Will the government lock people away for drug use or will it go after the root causes of opioid addiction and deaths from overdose?

Can convictions on drug charges be avoided in Vista Courts?

There is a way to avoid convictions on drug charges in Vista Courts depending on a number of factors.  If the person charged with drug charges in Vista Courts is charged only with possession of a small amount of illegal drugs for personal use or under the influence of drugs, they may be eligible for "diversion".  This alternative to conviction requires generally no prior diversions or drug record.  The rules are a little more complicated and are outlined in California Penal Code 1000.
