    Drug rehab needs to be free and putting addicts in prisons needs to stop. It costs a hellava lot more to imprison people. We can turn those tax dollars toward rehabs that saves lives and saves taxpayers money. *STOP PUNISHING ADDICTS* by imprisoning them because it doesn't work. (Unless they cause bodily harm or death.) *STOP SHAMING ADDICTS* especially when they are sober. They need love and support. Even if it's from a distance. *SET BOUNDARIES* and stick to them. Realize too if the addict started using when 14, 15, etc, years old that their EQ (Emotional Quotient) is still that of a teenager. Once they became sober over time you'll watch them "grow up".

    Stop the War on Drugs... It only makes things worse. Start with decriminalisation and medicalisation of drug addiction in the same way alcoholism, prescription drug abuse, smoking addiction, gambling addition.... humans are prone to developing addictive psychology & behaviour.... deal with these issues through medical/health & education programs. Mainstream supply, taxing, control & distribution of drugs through government regulation & control of the marketplace supply-user chain. Follow Portugal’s approach.

    Seriously, what did Melania do for 4 years? Be best BS what cause was that? The cause itself was noble, but the main offender lived in the same bedroom as her... Ooops, I mean in a separate bedroom at the other end of the House. These are the kind of issues she should have helped promote. Just like a true Trump, she is all about the money, the prenup and what outfit she is going to wear and stand there like a Model deer in headlights.

    I think this is great. We need to remove the stigma! There are varying statistics but the average is about 1 in 10 people are suffering with addictions to drugs/alcohol. It should be ok to talk about it without so much shame and denial. I'm glad they wrote these books, and I hope it helps others.

    Pinky power and colonial cronyism are the world's biggest threat both domestically and internationally. 140 Capitol police suffered brain injuries, smashed spinal cords, cracked ribs, eye injuries, stabbings and 5 related deaths. Criminal Lawsuits can now proceed for the 140 Capitol cops, 550 congressional staffers and 512,590 dominated Covid families. 35 Officers have been investigated and found to have helped the rioters. How do you open a locked door? Ask a cop to open the door with the key.

    Obsession May be something negative when using drugs but it is something positive when using make-up. September 11, 2017: L’oreal has a two page ad in People Magazine. The ad says: Matte Red Lip Stick is the Richest most Obsessive color and a Matte Addiction is good “because your worth it”.

    We already have an answer to the opioid crisis, kratom. After years of being demonized for the exact same reason cannabis was previously (that is, that widespread use would significantly curtail Big Pharma's profits), it's been revealed that a respected organization of physicians recommended (quite some time ago) that kratom NOT be regulated as sociopath Scott Gottlieb continually pushed for (again, not because of safety issues AT ALL; purely because of the effect it would have on big pharma's profits). Kratom is literally safer than ibuprofen. Do you know what happens if you take too much? You vomit. That's all. That's literally all that happens when you overdose on kratom. We have had this solution to the opioid crisis THIS WHOLE TIME, but information about kratom is continually suppressed, once again, because of Big Pharma's profits. The fact that MSNBC is having these people on air rather than talking about kratom is proof of how powerful big pharma is and how far it can reach to hide the truth from people who just want a life outside of endless pain.

    If his mother wasn’t a congresswoman and he was a poor person he would be in prison. He would have gotten caught with drugs a few times and that can be three strikes and your out. Didn’t you know you can get a life sentence for 4 joints? Yep. 1st joint misdemeanor. 2nd 3rd and 4th joint felony. 3 strikes.

    All drugs should be legalized. Yes even crack and heroin. Less people do them when they are legal. The Netherlands proved that. All the criminal justice savings can be spent on treatment and there will be a bunch left over.

    Stop the shaming and stigma. That's what keeps people 'out there'. After removing the substances, work on whatever it is you were trying so hard to not feel. An emotion only lasts up to 90 seconds if you just grin and bear it. You're worth it. I lost two children to substance abuse after being clean and sober myself for over a decade. 🙏❤️

      You're 💯 wrong. People need to talk about it and remove the stigma. It's their choice to come forward. If they wanted to remain anonymous they don't have to tell their story or use fake authors name(s) on the books.

      Nope wrong. AA&NA refers to anonymous; means you do not disclose another person’s name or information of that/ those persons.

    *I have good news for you!* Your debt has been paid! What debt? *The debt of sin.* _Because the wage of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord_ - *Romans 6:23* _For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God, being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus_ - *Romans 3:23-24* _Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned_ - *Romans 5:12* Through Adam death, *through Jesus Life* _Therefore as by the offence of one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life_ - *Romans 5:18* So, what is the point of this good news? *The Gospel of Salvation* - the Gospel means „Good news“ in Greek language. *What is the Gospel of Salvation/Good news?* _Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures_ - *1Corinthians 15:1-4* He, fully man and fully God, paid, to give you this gift of Eternal Life. Why He did it? *Because He loves!* - _For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life_ - *John 3:16* _For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him_ - *2Corinthians 5:21* Jesus Christ said: _I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No man cometh unto the Father, but by me_ - *John 14:6* Believe what He did on the cross for you and you will be saved. *He is waiting for you!* *What should I do to become a child of God?* *A* - Admit you are a sinner in need of a Savior. As it is written: _There is non righteous, no, not one_ - *Romans 3:10.* _For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God_ - *Romans 3:23* *B* - Believe on finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the Cross - _Christ died for your sins, was buried and third day He rose again_ - *1Cor 15:1-4 Gospel of Salvation.* If you want to enter to the Kingdom of Heaven, you must have a faith like a child - children trust their parents. Why I mentioned parents? Because God is our Creator; He is our Father; He is our Parent - _Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart_ - *Jeremiah 1:5* *C* - Call on the name of the Lord and you will be saved - _If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved_ - *Romans 10:9-10.* _For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved_ - *Romans 10:13* Jesus Christ is the shower/water that cleans us of all unrighteousness. _Come now, let us settle the matter, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; thought they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool_ - *Isaiah 1:18* As a christian, it's my obligation to share the Gospel - what Jesus did on the Cross for you. I'm not pushing anybody, just sharing :) Shalom, God bless you all ❤️

      @Paul Drusbasky - as if a cartel cares if the border is open or closed. The global supply of illegal substances has been very resilient during this pandemic, when loads of international borders are supposedly closed or only open to a few people in a highly, tightly regulated manner. Drug suppliers don’t care about borders - even closed ones.
