it's sad how many ppl are dying because of drugs and drinking.all they system can do is punish these ppl when they need to be getting help. AND IT'S NOT BEHIND JAIL/PRISON BARS!!! if this is really an "disease" than treat it as such. don't treat these ppl like they are criminals. they may commit criminal acts when they're under the influence,but that does not make them criminals
