What would you have done different if the decisions were yours to make?

Do you think community based programs are working?

Is there anyway to properly run asylums or is it good they are virtually gone?


I think too many in our prison system should have been never been free to commit their crimes.  I think we need facilities to supervise not just to stabilize.

First off Marijuana needs to be decriminalized. Seriously. That should cut down a lot of money spent on "criminals" who don't need to be there in  the first place...and this also ties into the Pharma Cos....

Good grief...yes people self medicate..I can see how harmful Coke, Meth, Heroine...And Alcohol are...but pot??? They call it the gateway drug...this has been pounded into our heads since what the 50s?

Why? I just watched recently a video similar to our commercials on TV (you know the ones which for the last half list what harm they can do to your body)....ughh imma dig it up...I think this pharma shit started in then.
