people getting fentanyl is because of the war on drugs. I they could buy know good drugs at the pharmachy instead of getting what ever random concoction of stuff they can get on the street they wouldn't be OD'ing

Th market doesn't go away so it would just increase price, profits, violence, and make the product even more random and dangerous didn't 50 years of "war on drugs" or prohibition teach you anything?

or the people who created an illegal uncontrolled marked by banning drugs are I'm sure the dealers would quite like their customers to stay alive to buy more

Why would you think that? Karl Marx died in 1883, by which time he'd been thrown out of the international socialist movement for advocating the undemocratic "leading role of the party" nonsense, which his fellow socialists - correctly - thought would lead to tyranny, as it did when Lenin put it into practice in Russia in 1917. Even Karl Marx would have had enough sense to realise that you can't sell housing to residents who don't have enough capital to buy a house, or enough income to properly maintain a house they are occupying. When you do have really gross income inequality - as you do in the United States - the poor are remarkably poor. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Spirit_Level_(book) Being exposed to people who are remarkably rich makes this even more depressing,

Right-wing commentators do like to suggest that the poor have extravagant habits. When society is set up to remind the poor how much more comfortably the rich live, there is a tendency for the poor to self-medicate against the consequent depression, which the well-off do see as an extravagance. -- Bill Sloman, Sydney

Haven't eons taught you anything? The cannibal leftist is effectively praising drug companies. You know, those wonderful drug companies that care only about their customers. If only the big drug companies were in charge of hideously addictive drugs, everything would be hunky-dory. It also implies that all drugs would be over-the- counter. That simpleton idea is glaringly stupid.

Their section 8 right is their capital. The government pays for most of their market rent, as well as administration costs. Why pay another group to get involved in housing. Just pay the rental assistance directly to them to maintain the property.

Biggest danger in being a low level hard drug dealer is from your customers and other dealers. Few months in jail? These idiots risk getting lit up regularly...

John Doe is glaringly stupid. Harm reduction drug programs don't deliver drugs over the counter - they have clinics where the addicts can get their maintenance dose - at the clinic, under supervision. They can't take their dose away to sell it to somebody else. The Netherlands has had them for many years - we left in 2010 and they had been running for years then. The French used to be rude about the Dutch "permissive attitude" but it worked better than the French "zero tolerance" approach where the drug dealers were motivated to recruit new paying customers, but they eventually adopted it too. https://www.northcarolinahealthnews.org/2019/02/11/to-tackle-addiction-the-french-look-beyond-drugs-to-care-for-the-person/ -- Bill Sloman, Sydney
