      There is no easy answer but I do think the Portugal model can offer us some insight. I take a harm reduction approach when looking at this issue. It's a different type of philosophy than the abstinence model. I firmly believe the war on drugs is a lost cause that requires new type of thinking around this issue. Politically, this country is probably 10-20 years away from this type of thinking.

        I'd be good with a system that doesn't incarcerate the drug addicts in with the general prison population. Rather channelling them to facilities that get paid based on their recidivism rate. With career training built in.

        I'd mention also that I know that federal drug laws are indefensible. Each state must write and enforce their own laws. Competition then will show the superior model(s). The top down, progressive, malarkey doesn't work on any issue.

        Got out of the elm. Now I'm burning Silverleaf Poplar. Nice flame but nowhere near the BTUs. Supposed to be +40 now for the next 10 days.

      Re. your views on the "My music..." thread. Personally I just post whatever on that one, rock, punk, alternative etc.. Posted a mix of Madonna singles through the decades the other week - which seemed to be well received. :)

    I hug each tree. Right before I cut it down.

    Signature

    When we drop a tree it's not "TIMBER". We call "FOUR". And when we crush something else we'll start yelling "FIVE".[​IMG]
