Rehabilitation and Treatment Programs

On Thursday, February 20th, 2014 in Get Involved

Rehabilitation and Treatment ProgramsTreating those who suffer from drug abuse as criminals have proven ineffective in alleviating the burden of drug abuse on our society. Instead, it has driven those with the potential to be rehabilitated into the streets and exacerbated the issues of mental health and homelessness.

    It is rare indeed to find a politician with the wisdom and insight that Elizabeth May has. Drug abuse is almost always the result of a person’s pain and inner conflict. It is a cancer that is spreading throughout the developed world, and imprisoning people is not a very effective cure. It needs to be dealt with as a medical issue, not a criminal one.
