Hello ex:

End the drug war.. Provide treatment on demand. Release prisoners convicted of drug crimes.. Give them their civil rights back and pay them reparations for each year incarcerated...

Many of the words and phrases used in the media and among academics suggest that things simply happen to people, rather than be being caused by their own choices and behavior. Thus there is said to be an 'epidemic' of teenage pregnancy, or of drug usage, as if these things were like the flu that people catch just by being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The difference between a policy and a crusade is that a policy is judged by its results, while a crusade is judged by how good it makes its crusaders feel.

End the drug war..

Hello ex:

I've heard everything from they DESERVE it, to MURDERING all of 'em......

To think EITHER of those things are viable solutions to a real problem is STUPID, STUPID, STUPID.

Now, I thought long and hard about how I should respond above, but I couldn't come up with anything other than STUPID. I suspect you put out that bit of nonsense because you truly don't have a solution..

Or, you COULD be mass murderers, I dunno.

As usual, mine, is the only REAL solution offered here. But other than scoff at it, you offer NOTHING..

Is this stuff too hard for you? Or are we just a clown show?

Human beings will lose their dependence on drugs when we as a species die out, if we ever do.

There was a time in the 60s, and perhaps the early 70s when the true horrors of drug abuse were unknown and those who, by their own free-will became enslaved to their self induced addiction could have been forgiven.

However, since then anyone who decides to voluntarily use drugs and becomes hopelessly addicted should be left to to simmer in the bubbling quagmire which they made for themselves.

No public resources should be directed towards helping these self-serving lotus eaters as we need every cent of tax revenue to help sick children and those whose life threatening illnesses were not self inflicted.

Only fools take drugs and in accordance with nature's law of ''SURVIVAL of the FITTEST'' these weak minded fools should be left to die in their own shit and urine thus making way for the more clever, discerning and strong-willed who will ensure the evolution of a race of superior human beings.

Hello N:

Indeed.. What I'm proposing is that we STOP doing what we're doing - not DO more stuff.

After we release drug offenders from prison, there'll be tons of money left over to offer treatment on demand, pay reparations AND take care of the kiddies too..

Gee, that proposal would fit in well as a conversation piece at 'The Mad Hatter's tea Party'.

I bet ''THE IMBECILE'' will steal your sure fired money saving and crime stopping measures and present them to the public as his own.

The Chinese have a short trial and take the offenders out and put a bullet in their heads at a sports stadium, among tens of thousands of cheering fans. Seems to work a treat. China does not have a drug problem. But they must laugh at how democracy can not prevent zombies from taking over entire US streets.

Hello hater:

I dunno.. Call me a liberal, but I just don't think murder on a massive scale is the solution..

Yes.. I'm sure the Chinese/Philippine dictators are laughing at us because we're a democracy..

So?

That you support BOTH murder AND the Chinese Communists is rather disturbing.. I'd see someone about that, if I were you.
