My People

I'm having an e-mail discussion with a rabid "punish the drug users until they quit or die" type. Here is my response:

If Hitler put them in camps they are my people. Sad that they are not yours. Count me with the Jews, the gays, the mental defectives, and the drug users.

Update: We have a commenter who says he has a family member destroyed by drugs.

Addiction Is A Genetic Disease

Heroin

The heroin bit is really good. Some 70% of female heroin uses were sexually molested. If any one needs more punishment they do.

PTSD and the Endocannabinoid System

And of course people suffering from PTSD should be denied their choice of relief. Since there is no cure. They should suffer in silence. If they don't follow orders they must be severely punished. It is why we have morality police. Every vice must be a crime. Only then will we attain the required moral purity. Without purity of essence we are doomed. From the The Department of Justice:

Chronic drug abuse may occur in conjunction with any mental illness identified in the American Psychiatric Association (DSM-IV). Some common serious mental disorders associated with chronic drug abuse include schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, manic depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, panic disorder, and antisocial personality disorder. Some of these disorders carry with them an increased risk of drug abuse
When you consider it carefully, what we have is a way to punish the mentally ill who do not subscribe to the prescriptions of the medical cartel. Well at least it gets them off the street so they will not be a botheration to normal upright citizens.

So why can't a person who has trouble with the wrong drugs get help? Because admitting drug use is an admission of a crime.

As a member of family destroyed by drugs, alcohol, and addiction, I think you are insane to make such a comparison.

Being a Jew forcefully removed from your home and placed in a prison camp by a racist monster is NOT a choice. Being gay is NOT a choice. Having a mental illness is NOT a choice.

Electing to use drugs IS a choice. By doing so you reap what you sow.
