The best method for society to follow would be to look at the entire fiasco realistically.The drug use will happen and the way they are sold and used effects others. Street Education that can build a rapport when society is not being arrested for petty drug use.
The direct sales of anything other than cannabis will cause sides to be drawn even further and wider and risks will be taken.Otherwise the status quo will rule forever.Anyone that thinks that the drug war is winnable and popular is as ignorant as a stump.The prohibition of any substance always causes a subsequent black market and socioeconomic issues galore.
The Over the counter sales of cannabis and having a doctor available for other drug scripts if really warranted would take so much drug sales off the streets that it would be noticeable.
This would be something Positive that is noticed instead of the usual Negative consequences.There is entirely too many sales of PILLS in the Tenderloin and some on sixth street too.This can be changed with Pain clinic appointments and SCRIPTS to the generally older clients.The Narcotic Pill Nazis have created too many Junkies and a SHITLOAD OF STREET DEALS.
Some of These Drug Deals did not exist until the pharmacies were raided by the feds in 1962 in San Francisco, Harry Anslinger had his final victory.
I personally know that Pain pills can be managed.
The FOOLS who get the OCs from the VA and sell them will eventually get caught and cut off forever.
The Insanity around Pills can change with realistic approaches.
The Street Dealing as America knows it today was not an issue until about the mid 60s until present day.It seems as though every substance that was available was taken away.The Drug Nazis went after drugs as though they were going to rid society of something that they have done for millenniums.Drugs only become an issue when prohibition is introduced.
The Prisons are too full and the consequences of Parolees on society can be reduced.With realistic approaches.The DRUG WAR needs to end.
The Only winners are the Drug Cartels,Gangs and prison guard unions.
From the Time the Dutch East Indian Trading Company made Opium Runs for China.
They Addicted China and then China Revolted.
The Junkies are an age Old Issue that need not be as HUGE.
Amsterdam has implemented Harm Reduction for Years now and crime did go down.
The Future will see Cannabis Clinics that Help Junkies.Cannabis replacing Methadone and Reducing the Bad Effects of HARD DRUGS.
It will be a great day when the workers on Stevenson quit Finding Old Syringes.Then stop finding Dealers.
It's taking Cannabis sales away from Street Thugs and having a Funding source for MORE HARM REDUCTION.
The Policy needs to be 501C3 all the way!
Harm Reduction is having a GIANT get together for all residents to network and have Public Speakers from the neighborhood.
