"God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."
-C G Jung
"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

Well considering 20% of those infected with HIV in America dont actually know that they are infected, through the spread of this infection with sex, my point stands - this poses an inevitable threat to society as a whole if the situation isnt addressed starting from one of the primary reasons people get HIV - dirty needles.We've done that for decades now. What do you suggest we do about that?
Thats where the syringe exchange program comes in. And the ignoramus elite in congress believe ignoring the situation rectifies is.

Whether a majority of prisoners are drug users or not is irrelevant. They aren't in prison for using drugs.
Personally, I support legalizing drugs and ending all public support of junkies. Let them do their drugs and live independently. If they wish to be career criminals, so be it.
