  • Seriously? Maybe we should follow Portugal's example, and treat drug addiction as a public health issue.

  • They are [people who have suffered great emotional pain and they try to self medicated to either forget of numb the problem. The are sick and have disease. They need help not jail. Jail is not the answer for every social ill that befalls society.

  • They should be helped through their problem by their friends, families, and neighbors.

Lets be honest, drug criminalization is a ploy by republicans to get impoverished minority communities to take drugs, get addicted, arrest them, then come back years later blaming black community as the cause for our prison budget. Or just to oppress them in general.

Those who take drugs often resort to crime to support their addiction. Therefore, to answer the above question, they are both.

If you want to get technical, but I'm certain you know what I mean. Which is why I specifically added harm others. I personally don't think drugs cause crime though. Certainly not if their legalized.

Jifpop ... Drugs (including legal ones) can cause violent behavior. They cause users to lose their inhibitions. Both can lead to criminal actions. So, drugs caused the crime. If you remove drugs from the equation, the crime most likely wouldn't have happened.

@SweetTea, I'm not sure that drugs cause violent behavior entirely on their own. Every drug user does not engage in violent behavior, therefore there must be other factors that contribute to violent behavior besides just the drugs. Childhood abuse and bullying are factors.
