I definitely see your point, and yes many cituations like the one you mentioned are and can be challenging. I hope you can agree that there are misguided people with misguided beliefs and a wrong sense of responsability who are sober... perhaps or perhaps not this was the case at Wally`s.
I do have addicts in my family and so my concerns rely on hope for a better way.. I really appreciate to try and have faith in a positive solution versus putting them away where its easy to not face the problem head on.. again I dont think anyone has found the proper solution, but it is good to hear all sides. Thanks for your side as well.

i also have addicts in my family and have lost multiply friends to different hard drugs and one unlce to heroin. if the addict is not willing to seek treatment than let them continue and make the wrong choices but if they are willng they shouldn't be treated as criminals. i believe strongly that these people who are unwilling to go to treatment right away maybe have more of a chance to see the benefits of treatment after being in prison for a month and sobering up so they can at least understand completely the choices they are making. you offer a sober addict the chance to feel like a productive member of society they will eat that shit up. unless they want nothing to do with it and don't know how to be a productive member..

tuff love beats turning the check.

Yea, 68% of Swiss voters (the same group that wouldn't legalize weed) decided that the program had a significant enough positive impact that it should be continued.
