Dealing with drug problems

The news reports today about the new policy in town to approach everybody who seems to have used drugs or who might sell drugs.

They've done it before and all they gained was the money of a few fines and problems in other neighbourhoods.

Handing out fines and sending people away doesn't make a real difference in the lives of drugs users and -dealers.
They just go on at another place and won't change their habits, so lives are destroyed at the same rate.

I think that the latest developments in heroin detox should be used to help drugsusers to gain control over their lives and problems again.

But strange ways of thinking have developed in our society. Becoming a druguser is a personal problem and it's like society doesn't want to help people who are not able to find the right direction in life. Do the lawmakers really think that telling someone they should stop is enough?

Fighting addiction is one of the hardest things to do, but maybe there's an addiction too in telling others what to do.
Well, at least it's the easiest way to deal with problems.
