Absolutely...so long as "disabled" are given no rights the rest of us cannot enjoy, such as sucking down taxpayer dollars being spent on unconstitutional social engineering welfare programs.
My response isn't included in the poll options.
I think anyone who entertains the idea to consider junkies as apart of the actual disabled is a complete idiot. People are disabled because of some unfortunate event that happened in their lives. A junkie destroys his/her body willingly there shouldn't even be a comparison.
Jackboots always come in matched pairs, a left boot and a right boot.
Some addicts are self-medicating a pre-existing illness and then fall into the addiction as a secondary consequence. I think it would be fair to assess people who are detained to see if they qualify as mentally ill, and then go from there.
You can only give them so many chances before they continually neglect the system and waste resources. I just think it's unfortunate when the mentally ill get put in jail.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
Well...first of all, the entire premise of this thread is wrong....but who would have thought FoxNews might report false information?
Being a drug addict is not considered a "disability" under California law.
This is probably yet again another instance of Fauxnews twisting the facts.
There are probably a lot of homeless drug addicts that have mental illnesses that constitute a disability. But being a drug addict in and of itself is not considered a disability.
