The Tragedy of Drug Prohibition

The tragedy of drug prohibition is some think drug use is behavioral problem, while others think it is an illness. The fact is, it is both and with prohibition laws in effect we do not know the difference. We continue to look at use as criminal behavior. We now are at a place where we only look at violation of prohibition laws as criminal behavior. This gives us the right to punish the ill and opens the closet for those bent on criminal acts.

Stop this 11th comandment, “Thou shalt not have psychoactive drugs anywhere not even in our bodies” crap. Focus our attention upon criminal behavior, thou shalt not kill, thou shalt steal, and etc, then a blind Polock with a deaf wife could determine the ill from the criminal.
