I'm not sure that this is the answer, but as much as I was initially turned off by it, I think that as a society we need to think more outside the box when it comes to addressing social issues. Maybe this is a step in the right direction. Drug abuse, with all its medical, legal, economic, and social repercussions, is a huge and constant drain us. Just saying "stop" just doesn't work in most cases. It would be nice if it did, and those who have never been entangled in addictions have a hard time understanding, but like some of these folks are saying, while we are waiting and hoping for better behaviors, we need to take measures that will protect the interests of society and the individuals.

I totally support this. The way to empower people is to accept where they are and show them better and let them decide. A person struggling with addiction should be accepted by themselves and others, given what they need and allowed to work on the addiction. As long as the person is being given the opportunity to overcome the addiction I see no problem with allowing them a safe place to experience whatever they need to experience. It is much safer for everyone involved if this is done.
