    No. It may improve, who knows. Perhaps they can isolate the concentration better for an active high, instead of a residual high, and indicate that.

    By the letter of the law, drug addicts are criminals as they trade in, use, and sell a controlled substance.

    As to the spirit, no I wouldnt say they were. People close to me have had struggles with drugs and after a while it becomes less of an "I want" as an "I need" where withdrawal produces violent physical symptoms and the brain chemistry starts forming a dependency.

    Socially, I think it does us a disservice to treat addicts like criminals. The vast majority of drug abusers are people who do want to be clean, but it's hard to fight brain chemistry.
