by anon-bfbb Jailing people for drug addiction is just plain evil. It is no different than jailing people with mental illness.

by anon-ab5f It is the best cure it work it does not cost tax payers millions of dollars I know people on SSI and fake meth for 11 years free taxi rides heating housing etc Trump is stopping this horse droppings.
JAIL with no heat is the best solution Russia does it and it works.

by anon-ab5f Under Ovomit I paid 39% of my income in Taxes (at least the income I made in the USA) and no mater how large this was that money should not have supported one single worthless drug users. As a tax payer I find it adherent that we waste billions on was-trills.

by anon-ab5f Taking Drugs is a choice I did not make.
Making decent money I worked hard for
But not to support a low life.
I would shipping him to Russia and paying the Russian government to detox him. 11 years someone I know is on fake meth. After 25 years on SSI and $800 a month housing and lots of other perks including food stamp my friend died at 53 with a bottle of Vodka in his hands. if he had gone to Russian rehab I would have a working living friend today and would not have had to watch his dad cry. Wake up to reality please.
