Thanks for the kind greeting. I don't identify any longer, but appreciate your thought in any case.
I'll go along with the responsibility onus up to a point. I think Rita's saying because it's being sold like beer or cigarettes there is an implied safety to using it. Just as we care for her when she ODs, we (as a society - here I go again) should also care about protecting her from herself.
There's something wrong when it takes a church group picketing to call attention to the problem. Law enforcement is only concerned whether the substance makeup meets criteria established by politicians. We need social programs to help people to find ways to deal with life w/o drug abuse. I don't see the health care industry picketing outside the Father, Son and Holy Smokes Shop. Drug abusers are patients. They're job creators, but at the same time raise the cost of my doctor's visit, which can bring us full circle to our health care mandate differences, helping save us from our collective selves.
You use an interesting choice of words...
.
Before I debate the whole of your post, I would like to say that honest police enforce the law; they do not interpret it, nor do they abuse it.
.
If I may, I would like to point out that the two leading causes of death are heart disease and cancer. Yet fast food, alcohol, and cigarettes are legal. I concede that it can't be proven that those items can be isolated alone as causes. The fact remains that industrial, commercial, and residential use of herbicides, pesticides, synthetic nitrogen, and airborne pollutants have an affect. That is not even including GMOs and hormones, including rBST/ rBGH that is not allowed to be labeled as hormone free.(I might point out that rBST/ rBGH and feeding beef cattle chicken litter is outlawed by every industrialized nation on earth, except the USA. We can't possibly know what else is not allowed to be labeled, as Monsanto keeps pushing the limits, paying fines and misleading the public... don't even get me started on Bayer and the bees.) I'm not sure that there is implied safety to beer, cigarettes, fast food, or many other legal substances or activities.
.
I could move on to vehicle deaths and injury, but the point is that there are many allowances that we have that does not imply safety.
.
I think it's ironical that in the 'other' thread of our continuous debate that you used the broccoli example when you use the term 'collective' in this one (you had to see this coming) when talking about the collective cost of healthcare.
.
I think that people that are lustful are at risk of creating a higher cost to my potential universal healthcare. If my fiscal rights are at risk, I think that risky sex should be defined and regulated.
.
I think that people that are gluttonous are at risk of creating a higher cost to my potential universal healthcare. If my fiscal rights are at risk, I think that diets need to be published and enforced.
.
Certainly you can see where the rest of my post is headed...

No one cares about your imaginary addiction to bath salts. Shut up and go eat a face.

Why is it that no one in this country is capable if critical thinking?
If you picket or protest outside of the stores that sell it you might as well wave a giant flag stating COME GET BATH SALTS HERE!!

Your mass stupidity is of more dangerous than the addict getting high.

And just to enlighten you rubes, putting addicts in jail does nothing but teach them how to ‘not get caught’ Your efforts should be based in actual TREATING the disease! AND IT IS A FUCKING DISEASE! YOU DONT PUT ALCOHOLICS IN JAIL DO YOU!

Addiction Definition:
Addiction is a persistent, compulsive dependence on a behavior or substance. The term has been partially replaced by the word dependence for substance abuse. Addiction has been extended, however, to include mood-altering behaviors or activities. Some researchers speak of two types of addictions: substance addictions (for example, alcoholism, drug abuse, and smoking); and process addictions (for example, gambling, spending, shopping, eating, and sexual activity). There is a growing recognition that many addicts, such as polydrug abusers, are addicted to more than one substance or process.
