Oklahoma's drug court

Updated:
(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Statistics show that women benefit more from drug court than men in Oklahoma.

The task force that released the statistics is studying why Oklahoma leads the nation in the number of women it sends to prison.

The study by the Oklahoma Criminal Justice Resource Center shows that the monthly income of female drug court graduates jumps 130%, while male graduates rose only 31%.

But men also enter drug court with higher wages than do women and have higher rates of employment.

The top four drugs of choice for women in order are methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana and alcohol.

For men, it is alcohol, methamphetamine, marijuana and cocaine.
