Just reading one of my “rash” comments this morning about illicit drugs and what to do about the problem.
First I really feel for anyone who has lost a child to this addiction/affliction.
Some in our society want to legalize all drugs with conditions:
get a prescription from a Medical Doctor – have the order distributed by a pharmacy.
on the surface not a bad idea but it does not solve the addiction.
In some major centers in Canada – clean needles and supervision can be given to addicts when shooting up – not a bad idea either.
My “rash” idea was that treatment centers to get people off drugs should be in remote areas with a programme agreed to by addict and family.
Sorry folks whether the addiction is beer, scotch, dope of all descriptions – it is an addiction to a substance that prevents a person from a normal productive life.
Take the poll on the right and don’t quibble on the how the poll looks:
Are you in favour of legalizing illicit drugs? Yes or No (Result 116 votes 75 No 41 Yes)
Note from Publisher – once this poll is spent we will add a second one – Are you in favour of de-criminalizing street drugs. Yes or No ( 41 votes cast 21 yes adn 20 no )
