LAST WEEK’S column on our failed policies of criminalization and enforcement on drug use, generated a large number of comments with opinions ranging from: “Build large warehouse prisons and lock up those who cannot live with the rest of us.” to “…a little insight and understanding the plight of addicts would go along way with the public concerns.”
There were suggestions that more money, more police, more prisons and in some comments, even the suspension of the Canadian Charter of rights would help solve the problem.
