Both. Drugs are illegal, so it should be dealt with criminally. The person also has an addiction, which is a health problem. The person should be treated to cure the addiction.

People own their bodies so they should be able to do what ever they want with them, including destroying their brain with drugs if that's what they want, but there should be free rehab places for when they decide to conquer their addiction.

the trade should be treated as a criminal matter

the use as a health matter, BUT one that can be forced (like forced treatment when someone is dangerously mad)

 

only a small minority wishes to try to get rid of it and see the treatment through of their own free will

 

 

a distinction should be made for the danger lvl, both for himself as for his surroundings

for example, an junk father is more dangerous than a lone junk and should be treated faster

 

 

but that is just the theory, in reality it's way more complex and way harder :huh:

the distinction between problematic and non-problematic use for example is hard to make, it takes time, and lots of it

so does treatment

 

and treatment for the drug use alone doesn't help much either, the subject will just go back to his normal environment and friends after his treatment and because of that most likely start again. Because he doesn't know what else to do. :unsure:

 

drug addiction, esp heroin, is really hard to conquer. It's more than just fighting the physical addiction, that is the easy part.

 

 

 

So all in all I think you need to provide help and force the worst case to get help. So a bit of both really

But the treatment should come from the health department, sanctions don't do the trick.

Problem is heroin, I can follow you with most drugs but not for that one

one shot and bang addicted, your body craves it

a heroin user isn't free to not use heroin (there are always exceptions, but those are just that, exceptions)

you can't let that get on the streets unchallenged

no way
