Wow you are really ignorant. Execute the people who can not stay clean? Has it ever occured to you that spmeone in your family whom you are very close to has a drug problem that you do not know about? I am going to say no. And then there are people like me, who have a legitimate reason to take pills. I am perscribed Oxycontin for multiple severe back problems. Without my painkillers I can not get out of bed in the morning. It is not my fault that these drugs are habit forming and that years of taking them have mad me an addict. Your post just shows that you are a judgemental, ignorant son of a bitch.

Drugs are a major issue in our country and have been. I agree with the folks that said it was a life choice and people are being stupid even trying it once. It's called being weak minded....following "peer pressure" to take something is stupid, besides the fact, why in the hell are you hanging out with people like that in the first place? Hello!
Another thing that burns me, is that even with our failing economy, and all the issues at home, we are still pledging and giving financial support to other countries. We have real problems here, and we are spending tax payers money overseas? Why? It's time we stopped spending the billions and billions of dollars we are spending overseas and start concentrating on our issues at home. Close our borders, spend the money on more border patrol, INS, I.C.E, and other organizations, kick people out of our country who aren't legal citizens ( afterall, how many of them contributed to our drug problem by smuggling in drugs from all over), and start executing people who can't stay clean. It's obvious they have a deathwish anyways, why leave them on the street to get desparate, so they can break into the home of an innocent family and kill them so they can take their belongings or money to continue their habit. It's all a downward spiral. Their addiction is a virus killing America, and the only way to stop it is to get serious about dealing with it.
You start executing people who are involved,(no plea bargaining, no plea deals, and no appeals) and you will see it come to a screeching halt. Unfortunately, you have to break a few eggs to make an omelete. I know all the tree huggers out there don't understand that theory. That is why there are stronger willed people, required to carry out the work it takes to provide you with a safe environment, so that you can live a safe happy life criticizing people like us.
Jack Nicholson said it best in a "A FEW GOOD MEN":
Son, we live in a world that has walls and those walls need to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use then as the backbone of a life trying to defend something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said "thank you," and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest that you pick up a weapon and stand a post.
