The nation's current opioid epidemic has shed light on the problem of drug addiction. However, while drug addicts do need help, if police suspect them of possessing or selling illegal substances they could be arrested and charged with drug crimes. This could negatively impact a person's life for years to come. Not only are addicts not receiving the help they need to rehabilitate, but they may face jail time and a criminal record that will follow them the rest of their lives. It is a vicious cycle.

For example, one former United States postal worker was recently charged with grand larceny and three counts of identity theft. The worker is currently in jail with bail set at $35,000 and will appear in court in the next few weeks.
