Addict aren't just addicted to *illegal* drugs either. No body wants to address the issue of *legal* pharmaceutical drug abuse which, IS a far worse problem.

Not from the standpoint of a loss of rights for the general populace.

If you take too many painkillers because you're sad, that's a problem. For you. You're your own victim.

If a door gets kicked in by a SWAT team and Grandma gets shot because some anonymous informant tells tall tales, that's a problem. For anyone who wakes up unlucky that day.

Freedom means being able to f@#$^ up your own life, and you deal with the consequences. Tyranny means other people can f@#$^ up your life, and leave you with the consequences.

I'll take my chances with freedom.
