Work, selling and buying a home, and more work has prevented me from engaging here in a conversation. I'm a little hesitant to of started a PWI thread knowing I won't have a ton of time to dedicate to it, but oh well
Exactly my thoughts.
Who is going to want to go to school, pay their way, and deal with this shit. Like I said earlier, I have a cousin who has been on and off heroin for 6 years.
This is something we haven't done... yet we are decriminalizing it. Essentially, an addict, who cannot function normally, will be ticketed and released. The individual will never pay the fine, but will be released to continue. The state has done nothing to support them beyond their current level.
I'd venture to say that making use of heroin, PCP, etc punishable by life imprisonment/death/arm cut off, that fewer people would 'START' using these harder drugs as well. I'm sure ED will chime in with the rationale for beginning use of such hard drugs. #skininthegame
