307. And such people are not "in the system" most often since what they want is illegal
Edited on Tue May-11-10 12:52 PM by Oregone
Yes, these people need help. But how does the health authority really learn and monitor their condition when they are scumming it up in the back alleyways to get their illegal fix?


Even decriminalization doesn't address this problem, since the traffickers will still be criminals operating outside of the system (and thereby pulling their customers outside).


You can recognize how awful these drugs are without automatically giving value to the notion that making them illegal improves the overall situation any
