No, but we should treat drug abuse more as a health issue than a criminal issue. Addiction is a not as simple as black and white. I believe there should be incentivization of private corporations to aid with drug use. Not a safe haven where folks can use at will but a treatment clinic where people can safely be rehabilitated.

@926DM4T from Missouri answered…8mos

Not to just use them still but maybe for recovery and weening off of them.

@8ZQSQZ9 from GU answered…9mos

No, this is unsafe as chronic drug use has health impacts other than overdose.

No, but they should not be put in a normal prison if they are willing to be rehabilitated.

No, they don't have supervision now and it would just milk the taxpayers to require supervision. Just make all drugs legal and stop the 'drug war' - it is a failure. We didn't have drugs illegal until 100 years ago and people did as they choose. Keep driving or operating anything that endangers others while intoxicated illegal. It's like trying to make drinking illegal - people are going to do what they want regardless of the laws.

If the cities wish to, yes. But all drugs should be legalized and/or decriminalized. Addictions should be treated as a health issue rather than criminal.
