Hard living is the problem, not narcotics. How easy is it to blame a substance when 1% of America is legally doing the same drug others are incarcerated for? Are there issues surrounding narcotic use, absolutely, but how many of those are exterorially imposed?

Imagine police COULD spend every second policing substances, policing pedophiles and their ilk instead. I think the world would be a better place.

What if the blight that is homelessness had one less hurdle to jump? Or the cartels in Mexico went the way of the Mafia in the US after alcohol was re-legalized? But before that, we have to be at peace with our neighbors and the communities we aim to build. Compassion is due to everyone, especially the ones unwilling or incapable of having a dialogue. Respecting their peace is a good start.
