I watched as your addiction consumed you and turned you into a monster. Your loving words turned into hateful actions. I watched as you became angry at the world until your substances were the only thing that mattered anymore. Nothing was good enough for you, and nothing could save you… not even me.
Kissing you is like smoking weed
Your lips taste like cannabis
Our source is flames our souls in bliss
Sensless senses in motion
Calm and common in commotion
My sunshine rains all the time
He swears he’s happy that he’s mine
people are gonna do drugs regardless of what laws you put in place, its a fact, they’re going to do drugs, especially if they’re mentally ill, or physically dependent.
If you really wanted to get rid of drug cartels, and addiction, you’d first need to decriminalize all drug addiction and use, all of it, release everyone, especially children imprisoned on drug charges, and expunge their records.
The government should provide addicts with drugs, for free, as treatment, they should be monitored and there should be support groups, therapists, psychiatrists, etc.
Cartels can’t compete with free. Drug addicts are closely monitored by hospital staff, and worked with to get off of the drugs without being judged. Addicts aren’t being exploited by people who want them addicted, they’re getting the drugs to work on getting off of them, etc.
Like if people really wanted to work on this “Addiction problem” they’d fucking you know, work on it. And Portugal has shown great results doing similar shit.
I know it sounds counterproductive to give drug addicts drugs, but you can’t just cut them off cold turkey, and you have to work through why they want the drugs in the first place. You can get them non-physically addicted a billion times over and over again, but if you never address why theyre doing drugs in the first place it’s not going to do anything.
So they’ll just go back to a dealer, exploiting them, wanting to keep them doing drugs, etc. The dealer profits, and continues to try and get more people addicted so they can profit further off of exploiting mentally ill people mostly, and physically addicted people who would die without said drugs.
free drugs is the only way to completely crush that system of exploitation. And it has been shown to decrease addiction, and drug use as a whole.
