Drug addiction in Toronto

Postby Pondero » July 31st, 2017, 4:29 pm

I don't have a hell of a lot of sympathy for drug addicts.Now that heroin laced with fetanyl has killed a few people the response has been for more safe shooting up centres. No one has suggested depriving the addict of his liberty for a short time period.Rounding them up and putting them at tax payers expense in institutions where they can be looked after. Or do we continue having our paramedics waste time picking up dead bodies from the street.
Let nothing disturb you.
Let nothing make you afraid.
All things are passing.
God alone never changes.
Patience gains all things.
If you have God you will want for nothing.
God alone suffices.
