Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Large numbers of hard drug users are not provided with treatment and are taken out of the community and put in prison, where they are surrounded by other drug users and locked in a room with nothing to do AND there is a well established drugs market in operation. But it's too political to address.

As an ex-policeman I know said "Posession may not be nine tenths of the law, but it is nine tenths of the convictions".

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
