8. Where-ever the conversation happens?

It needs to be had. The "excuse for continuity and disguise of racism" is one of the biggest rip-offs for the tax payers in history-"Its For The Kids! It's For Public Safety". Just since Nixon its cost us countless lives, over $2 Trillion, overburdening our social services, ruining families, kids futures, filling prisons.

We get zero return as taxpayers for allowing our government to continue to fund the WoD's over expanding education, treatment and developing a comprehensive harm reduction/education program.

Turns out when people aren't lied to and are factually informed-we make different decisions about what we put in our bodies.

Take a look at the successes of Anti-Tobacco campaigns - look at the falling social acceptance and look at the different choices kids started making when they were told the absolute truth and then allowed to make their own informed decisions.

Current corporate treatment programs, imo, in many ways are designed to fail so the revolving door keeps spinning..for profit.
