    Drug addiction is a very real thing - the prison system has thus far been ineffectual and so has every drugs policy pursued by every President since this problem began.

    But now that components of the US government want to pull the plug on the syringe-exchange program, where does that leave us? Does encouraging the use of dirty needles dissuade addicts from taking the drug? What impact will this have on rates of infection across America?

    Do you support the termination of the syringe-exchange program?

    Would have to give it some more thought on the subject but I agree that there is not enough to get at the root of the problem. I believe it should be addressed in schools as a class starting very young and addressed each year in school through the grades. Give extensive education on the issue starting when they're young showing the damage drugs cause individually, family, society, etc

    I'm fine with ending it. But I'm also good with ending the entire war on drugs.
