The regenerating head of the hydra will never meet it's demise. Legal and regulated pharmaceutical grade opiates etc. Is the best possible outcome it removes stigma and societal issues, increases acceptance, lessons mental health issues and increses health outcomes. Look to Dutch and Portugal, countries with progressive policy, decreasing incarceration and increasing society's acceptance and treatment.

The current model elsewhere will never work. People can lead comfortable lives if there not spending all the effort searching for unsafe illegal substance. Crap I could imagine a happy eutopia plotting around my legal poppy field, farming nice healthy resin, instead of doin the death dance on cut crap or using chalk filled pharmaceuticals. Just because some one uses a substance, it dose not make them scum or unable to contribute to society. Society's stigma creates the downfall. How many of yall drink legal safe regulated alcohol? Give your brethren the respect of enjoying there poison safely from a reputable source!

This isn't really a part of the state that I would associate with the opioid crisis, since that's mainly Appalachia, but it goes to show how bad the drug problem is everywhere.

40% of applicants can't pass a drug test. That's high by normal standards. Where I am, it's closer to 90% who can't.

It's a real mess.

What good are national headlines gonna do? Besides, people do say 'if it bleeds it leads' concerning the MSM.

Why So Many Violent Crimes Now? Awake!—2003

[Box on page 6]


Some argue that the propensity for violence or killing has always been inborn in humans. Supporters of evolution maintain that we come from wild animals and have simply inherited their violent characteristics. Such theories would leave us doomed to an endless cycle of violence from which there is no hope of escape.

However, there is much evidence to the contrary. The theories mentioned above do not explain why in different cultures there are wide variations in frequency and types of violence. They do not indicate why in some cultures responding with violence seems to be the norm, whereas other societies report very little violence, with murder almost nil. Psychoanalyst Erich Fromm exposed cracks in the theory that we inherit aggression from primates by pointing out that although some of them are violent as a result of physical needs or for self-protection, humans are the only ones who have been known to kill for the sheer thrill of killing.

In their book The Will to Kill—Making Sense of Senseless Murder, Professors James Alan Fox and Jack Levin state: “Some individuals are more prone to violence than others, yet free will still exists. The will to kill, though governed by numerous internal and external forces, still includes choice and human decision making, and thus accountability and culpability.”
The Bible’s Answer

The Bible helps us to understand what is happening now and why people act in such extreme ways. It accurately describes attitudes we commonly see. For example, the list found at 2 Timothy 3:3, 4 states that people would have “no natural affection” and that they would be “without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness,” and “headstrong.” In another Bible book, Jesus was quoted as saying: “The love of the greater number will cool off.”—Matthew 24:12.

The Bible says: “In the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here.” (2 Timothy 3:1) Yes, what we see is evidence that we are living at the end of the present system of things. Conditions, along with people’s attitudes, are on a downhill slide. Can we expect an immediate solution? The Bible answers: “Wicked men and impostors will advance from bad to worse.”—2 Timothy 3:13.

Does this mean that mankind is doomed to an endless cycle of vicious violence and escalating crime? Let us examine that question in our next article.
