"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
People don't 'seem' to get it. The vast majority of drugs that are currently illegal were illegalised in order to deport mexicans or incarcerate recently freed slaves in this century and in the last. Before then society had free usage of anything anyone could ever want and last I checked were not in a post apocalyptic state.
Another thing people don't seem to get is that drug usage will occur despite its legal status and that the inavailability of clean needles is a direct burden on society. Peoples haughty 21st century family values morality aside, were going to save more money by giving people needles to do whateverthe****isit that they do rather than chastise them and have many more suffer in numbers many factor larger.
Nobody cares if you don't like it because its iwwegal and drugs r bad mmkay.
As for catching addicts at the needle exchange or drug ween-off clinic prepare for a human rights ****storm and a hefty jail bill for locking them all up.
