Reader's Opinion: Drug addicts desperate for their next fix?
RE: The stealing of Gladys Nuttall's brass plaque.
Metal-thieving drug addicts desperate for their next fix? These addicts and drug dealers are without doubt the scourge of our society today.
What is surprising is why do people take these drugs like M-Cat, causing so much trouble when it's well known the devastating effects they have on the lives of those who take them?
What about if drugs were legal and only supplied through official outlets at a lower price with good advice and a constant strength so it would knock out the vast profits they are making?
Plus, what about all the prisons with more of the same offenders? Millions of pounds is spent trying to stop the unstoppable.
This money could be used to bring this thing under control because, sure as eggs are eggs, they are not having much success the way they are dealing with it now. And I don't think they ever will, except by filling the prisons.
And the Mr Bigs are just growing bigger and bigger.
If the punishment was more of a deterrent, it just might help.
In reality, we are all victims indirectly with higher insurance premiums because of what they do.

Drugs, is legalising them the answer? Government and advisers have always been strongly against this. What do you think?
