Since the Mayor doesn't have a problem, then it's not the Mayor's problem.
Well, just execute them, instead. Their lives have been a complete waste, and, according to all those people who want to maximize the number of abortions, a life not worth living is better if it's not lived. So, if it's expense you're worried about, here's an alternative program:These are people who will likely steal, prostitute, gamble, or whatever it takes to get their fix. They are going to end up in prison where the tax payers will end up paying a lot more. Heck, the drug tests aren't free either. That will cost tax payers quite substantially as well.
Make cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamines completely free, so that any adult can go to a distribution center and take as much of whatever he wants for no cost to him whatsoever. However, the drugs provided must be chemicall pure and uncut.
That's almost certain to reduce the number of addicts in a very short period of time, without any problems of drug-dependent criminal activity.
The addict doesn't care about themselves, and the Mayor certainly doesn't care about them, so why not implement this beneficial national program?
Yep.You really think you are morally superior to these people?
So?A lot of these people live very crappy lives and drugs are about the only escape they have.
What's your point, that other people should bear the addict's financial burdens?
Ah, the path of "Wish you were there", which isn't a Pink Floyd song.Most started well before they were even adults and have been addicted for years. All these kinds of laws do is take them off the streets and put them in prison on the tax payer's dime. If you were born in their circumstances, you would likely have turned out the same way.
