Drugs are ruining people's life. I just don't understand why a clinic that may offer some help for some people, because I don't believe everyone wants help, met with such hostility from the city.

In the news recently in Pittsfield it's been alleged that drugs/drug use/drug abuse are at the center of a number criminal cases, or not, if you're a cop. And it's not just a bunch of punk kids. In one case, allegedly a fireman has lost his job after he allegedly broke into a sports club and committed robbery, allegedly. In another case it's alleged that a nurse in responsible for a number of armed, masked robberies. And in another case recently three people in the healthcare field were charged with drug violations. And in the PPD an officer admitted to his involvement with illegal drugs. These are not a bunch of punks. They are law enforcement, firemen, and nurses. These are people put in positions of trust. And they're allegedly abusing drugs. So I would prefer that there are places to get help if they want it. Because these people are probably not going to jail and some will not lose their jobs.

All drugs should be legal and given out for free.

Sometime addiction makes addicts do unforgivable things. Addicts will manipulate, lie, cheat, steal and destroy anyone who gets in the way of thier addiction. I could almost understand an addict's reluctance to get clean and face the harm, the heartache, the devastation they've caused. I could almost understand it, but I won't forgive it. Because somethings are unforgivable. But for anyone who has the courage to face the devastation of their addiction on themselves and others, I really don't want any obstacles in their way.

Amazingly certain destructive drugs are legal, socially accepted, marketed, and taxed.
