then literally what is the point?
there's absolutely no point decriminalising drugs like fucking meth, heroin and crack if the government has absolutely nothing to gain. if anything, the government has more to lose given the fact that crime rates following addiction rates not rates of recognition of addiction by arrest. it basically means the government has no way to track addicts based upon their crimes until their methed up fuckwit arse is bashing some poor bastard for $15.
decriminalisation has minimal advantages aside from dudeeeee dont hate me cuz i do drugs lmao. i want the police to be able to track fucked up methheads based upon where theyre arrested.
