Great question, CW. Thanks for asking.cxwx wrote: ↑Thu Aug 06, 2020 9:30 pmSoooooo, the Jofa platform?
Serious question, if you every become supreme overlord, what would your stance on substance abuse issues be. Decriminalization with comprehensive treatment programs or prohibition combined with the gas chamber for those too weak to be pure and direct. Would you have fat fucks melted down into tallow?
All of the research pretty much shows that rehabilitation doesn't work, the vast majority of addicts never recover, something to the tune of +90%. With that harsh reality in mind, my administration would propose a federal reinstatement of involuntary commitment of all drug users, into institutions that are more or less penal colonies. The interned would be fed and clothed and provided with the opportunity to work and be productive. Releases would be granted under exceptional circumstances only. In tandem with this policy, my administration would cease the government's facilitation of the global drug trade, and initiate military confrontation against the cartels. I would invade and occupy part of Mexico if only Tijuana. The mission would be accomplished only after unconditional surrender and dissolution of all drug cartels. Death penalty for all drug dealers. In a couple decades I could have the drug problem all but solved. Keep in mind this is the most humane option possible, most other countries just execute their drug addicts, that's why you don't see masses of junkies on the streets of Shanghai or Abu Dhabi. I'm just proposing concentrating the existing junkie population and choking off the supply at the source. The problem of drug wars aren't that they don't work, they obviously do, most other places in the world have gone through this already and won, it's that the current government has perverse incentives to perpetuate the problem. Btw this is a personal issue for me, Oregon is swarming with homeless drug addicts, it's worse than California up here.
