Subject: RE: BS: A war with drugs
Drug addiction is not a medical condition which can be cured, but simply a question of moral weakness.

Most of us have addictions of one kind or another, even if we don't want to admit to them. But then recognising this is the first step to freeing ourselves - and it is all a matter of will power. It was through will power I gave up ciggies, and (please don't laugh, it wasn't funny) chocolate and sugar (ie anything sweet). Calling it a medical condition only panders to the addict. If the "Smiling Do-gooders" enforcing this myth would talk a long walk off a short pier it would be a start. We must press the government to increase sentences. That would be a start.
