Description
There is no clear-cut answer to this thorny question. But the various opinions and positions associated with it are worth examining if we are to come up with a successful, satisfying solution to the problem of drug abuse and the crimes associates with it in this country. Should those addicted to drugs be treated as criminals or as sick people? How much money should be spent on fighting the manufacture and importation of drugs from other countries? Has the War on Drugs been successful, or should it be abandoned in favor of a brand-new approach? If so, what should that approach be? Far more complex than the titular question, these issues are spelled out for readers to draw their own conclusions and formulate their own opinions.
