Do you ever notice how drug addicts are either portrayed glamourously, like John Travolta in Pulp Fiction and like Gia, or just as these absolutely wretched, dirty people shooting up in abandoned warehouses, like they did here? No one ever shows someone just shooting up while watching Friends. It makes you wonder.
Well that article is just disturbing. Chaining people to a church? I mean wow, no drug is worth that. And the fact that Indonesia does that to people who are mentally ill for so long is really sad. I guess maybe it works, but you can cut the hands off of jaywalkers and it won't mean that that's a good punishment if jaywalking stops.
dragoneye: tying drug addicts to a pole would be so much more decent than incarcerating them. OUR PRISONS ARE CROWDED ENOUGH!! We need murdererers and rapists there, not people who choose to hurt themselves. We shouldn't waste jail space and our money on dealers either...people have to get drugs somewhere and if they want to buy it, let them do so and don't put harsher laws on dealers.
Theres nothin wrong with drugs, you feel that you can exscape reality by drugs go for it. If i choose to damage my own body its nobodys buisness but mine. Just because you do drugs doesnt make you an addict either. Lots of people have there drug of choice and that doesnt make it wrong cause somebody else doesnt agree with it.
Drugs may have somethin to do with crime rate, but not a whole lot. There are alot of other crimes being comiited beside drug related crimes. You CANT go blaming drigs on crime bacause thats just stereotypical(if thats a word). CEO's commiting fraude isbnt because drugs. Bank robberies is for money. Murder has all sorts of motive. To blame crime on drugs is just ignorant. Lots iof people work for there drugs. Your pretty much saying all drug users are low life society abusers wich is incorrect.
i dont really know how to respond to that post ijordan, but i'll try. think about it. when people become addicted to a hard drug, as they invariably do after a long period of regular use, they need to feed that habit by obtaining large amounts of money. a large proportion of drug addicts do not have that kind of cash at their disposal, so, they must commit crimes to get their fix. the crime rate goes up. of course, i'm not saying that drugs are responsible for every crime committed, and i'm definitely not pretty much saying that all drug users are low-life society abusers. that would be ignorant, incorrect and stereotypical.

favor: Go home tonight and take all your albums, all your tapes, and all your cd's and burn em'. Cause you know what? The musicians who've made
all that great music that's enhanced your lives throughout the years...
RRRRRRRRRRRRReal f*ckin high on drugs."

are they animals? how about sending them to a rehabilitation clinic? i just came back from a 3 month stay at one and it worked wonders. plus, making them snap out of it like that could cause some serious damage to their psychological system.
it's better than what they currently do to rehabilitate addicts. a lot of them leave the clinic to come back to the drugs they use. to IckBee, it might have worked for you, and I'm happy for you, but sometimes the "harsher" treatments work better
that's horrible! yea yea yea, i know some of u say you need to be cruel to be kind but seriously, it won't work! there are other ways that don't involve such harsh measures. think bout them 1st b4 u go get the chains.
