Re: [CHAT] Australians On Drugs ABC2

Just saw a tweet on the show saying that 'everyone takes drugs for the same reason'. 

 

Um, no.

Yay Portugal!! They decriminalised using drugs - and treated it as a health issue!
The results:
overdoses down
HIV down
crime down
Police costs down.

and...
Drug use did not rise!

In summary:
Criminalising drugs doesn't deter people from using, it deters people from treatment

Thanks @Myvo @tsnyder just struggling with the content of the show so it's best turn it off and go to bed.

I really don't like these young people on this show.  They are irrational and don't meet anyone half way and personalize everything.  Can someone pleaseeeee tell these people they don't represent everyone's opinions.  Can't stand these young guys!!

Re: [CHAT] Australians On Drugs ABC2
