We shouldn’t help addicts.
Addicts are a cancer on society, regardless of whether their vice is drink, cigarettes, medications, cannabis or any of the other assorted concoctions of the devil. What irks me even more is that the medical society has the audacity to claim it is a disease. This is merely catering to the great masses of bankrupt, unwashed souls who have these vices. I say the worst thing we can do is help them with an addiction they brought upon themselves. Would you slap a ham sandwich out of fat person’s hand and then pay to send them to a colony where they can only eat tofu and get healthy? No—why would you? that person obviously chose that sandwich and chose his or her lifestyle. So why would we do this for people who are addicted to other vices? We let mercy get the better of us; we let ourselves feel compassion for those who do not deserve it. These people made a bad decision, and now it is society’s job to help them? If your drug addicted neighbor double parks and gets a ticket, is it fair for him to give it to you? This is what we are doing by allowing taxes to fund hospital rehab programs and drug information programs—Money that would be better spent on paving roads. Paving them with addicts, that is.
These people only make up around 5 per cent of the population, so why would we invest all this time and money on such a small and troublesome group? Even if one of them grew up to become filthy rich, they would never pay back the amount of money it costs to house one of these degenerates. I say, let them destroy themselves with vice and that can be the end of it. Not a single addict deserves sympathy or to have their addiction called a disease. Cancer, leprosy, cholera, typhoid fever, influenza, Ebola and the bubonic plague are all diseases. Why insult all the people who are dying painfully from real diseases by grouping them with people who chose their own “disease?” Only a demented mind would chose to be an addict. I say, if you are addicted, then just stop. You don’t like withdrawal? Oh, muffin! I guess you shouldn’t have done heroin in the first place! Now just quit it or go get out of the sight of society before you drag someone else down. Live in the sewers with the rest of the filth like your kind.
Do you know any cancer patients who could easily recover from cancer if they would just stop injecting more cancer into their veins? No! I say the only case in which an addicted person deserves help is when it is against his or her will. If, say, they are sitting at home minding their own business and then their dealer breaks into their home and then shoots them up with drugs. Honestly though, this doesn’t happen. Another thing—peer pressure or the desire to be cool doesn’t count as a reason. Just say No! I mean, Nancy Reagan taught us that much in my generation, and that was enough. We should force every child to watch that episode of Diff’rent Strokes with that adorable Gary Coleman, and that should be enough. If the former first lady of the most powerful country on earth can’t convince them it isn’t a good idea to do drugs, then nothing will. I mean, aren’t Gary Coleman and Nancy Reagan cooler than any of the kids at school?
Worst of all, certain individuals in Canada have been espousing the view that drugs can be used for good. That is like saying a nuclear bomb can be used for good. It cannot, and neither can drugs—they are works of the devil and we would all be better off if they never existed. I say we need to send them all to Baffin Island and let nature run its course; we wouldn’t even have to pay to ship them there. Just tell them there is all you want free drugs, video games and potato chips if they can make it there.
