I'm not talking about marijuana, I am talking about the hard-core drugs like Meth, Crack, etc. I am against drug usage but I have a question. What do you all think that proper punishment should be for abusers and dealers? (EDIT: I am meaning the ones that commit crimes while on the drugs or the ones that commit crimes to get the drugs. And should the dealers be just as accountable because they provided them with the drug?)
I recently watched a documentary about meth, and the officials in Thailand have simply killed off many of the users.
I personally know quite a few meth addicts here in the U.S. that, after serving their sentence for being "busted", have returned to drug abuse. Obviously, rehab and prison isn't working.
According to the website ncvc.org, 81% of crimes are drug-related. What, in your opinion, is the best solution for punishment and what can our authority figures do to get things under control?
Not quite sure who wins the lobbying battle between police officers and prison wardens vs. pharma companies and experts.
Ever noticed how there seems to be a connection between religiosity and drug laws? I don't think they want us to feel good. :)
have you ever smoked or been addicted? this question is huge...ive had soooo many ppl come up 2 me and tell me all the horrible things about smoking and drug habits only 2 find out they have never been addicted 2 anything.... only an addict/ex-addict/recovering addict, (however you perceve someone with a past addiction) truly knows the struggle...
