Jason: "With all due respect, someone who's 'pretty square' when it comes to drug use probably isn't the best person to decide whether they are harmful or not."

So these people who you help get off drugs, would be better in prison then taking the help of your institution?

I used to be of the mindset that drugs all needed to be criminalized, until I realised that it had little effect on the consumption of drugs.

To be clear: The argument here isn't promotion of drugs, rather, that support systems are much more effective than imprisonment.

There is evidence of this in any country.

Some European countries took note of this and started the decriminalise drugs. Society didn't deteriorate, but in fact ended up being more persevere to social under-bringing.

My personal opinion is that education is key. An educated mind makes more educated decisions. A unnecessarily jailed society doesn't solve problems.
