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?
artist, writer, I dunno there must be something being stoned makes a person good at it.
Dancing in the rain?
Lots of the bartenders around here drinks and smokes weed at the job. The owner is usually one of them, quite often the guy who sells drugs. Harms no one.
But I am given responsibility of potentially millions of dollars every day, and I owe my employer and coworkers the respect of doing the job sober. It's really the same respect I show them by not smoking cigarettes at indoors at work either. I don't immediately promote whatever bad habits I may have in every situation.
Because I have very, very, very expensive training to pay for.
I can't pay for that training without money.
ya, sitting in the tower I just had to pull down the blinds, at 9:25 at night. I 'll walk the doggie on the beach at 1AM to watch the sunset.
Maybe even contemplate whilst I walk:)
