I was reading the article “Mobile harm reduction team hits the road” in the Nov. 28 Mirror paper and was NOT impressed by the quote of one of the harm reduction workers.
She is quoted by the paper that they, (being drug users) “have the RIGHT to use drugs safely. Since when as a taxpayer am I obligated to pay for services for people breaking the law? Why is their safety my concern?
Slowly in the socialist state we are making excuses for people’s bad behaviour. No longer is the thief a criminal but a victim of his poor circumstances. The drug addict is not mentioned as doing anything wrong and is now not only entitled to drug use, but coddled in the process.
I suppose from the time drug use or the abuse of any intoxicate became designated as a disease this mind set was inevitable.
