JackieRabbit: I think you get my point. The legislative response to the meth "problem" was one of the most absurd knee-jerk reactions I've ever seen and it has had absolutely no effect. I call this a "problem" because it never was as big of a problem as we have been lead to believe. Some areas do have a significant problem to deal with but most do not. Just a relative few users, who lose control. I tried crystal meth way back in the 2970s. I don't see what the attraction is. But then I never have like stimulants and believe that cocaine is the suckiest drug ever. Give me the mellow of goo pot any day.Prohibition doesn't work. Eradication doesn't work. Prison for users and sellers doesn't work. Education can help. Intervention for those who need it helps. So we have three things that cost us billions of $$ each year and two relatively cheap things that can help. This should be a no-brainer for us.
CygnusDarius: Why the fark take meth? Hasn't everyone seen what meth does!?.
