“It’s time for the WOD to end. (for more than a few reasons)”
Which isn’t to say we have to legalize everything or give up on efforts to prevent destructive addictions, but clearly approaching drug abuse almost entirely as a law enforcement problem has not been very effective. OTOH, alcohol is legal and it continues to be a problem, and abuse of it appears to me to be even a growing problem among young adults. I don’t know what the answer is.
Just make it illegal to drink in bars.
Second-hand fumes and all that.
I know what the answer is: PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. If you must face the consequences for your actions, you tend to become much more temperate in what you do and how much of what chemicals you use for relaxation...
