Basically that's what the 'workfare' program did in the US.

And yet I have no idea how it avoids conflict with any sort of minimum wage law. How is it that I should be able to pay you $2/hour of welfare when the least I can legally pay you is much higher than that?

Universal drug tests for everyone. Or just send in the army to eliminate all drug houses.

What is a drug house? Any house where people have drugs? That's quite a few houses.

^ lol

and seriously, though, **** that shit. i don't even drink and smoke, let alone do drugs, and i'd take a pretty dim view of it if anyone tried to force me to take a drug test.

Not sure if you guys could tell if I was trolling, but something needs to be done about drugs.

You're right...certain people need to take more, certain people need to take less.

why not legalise?

or are we talking about it being a more attainable goal?

because I know I'd like to see some sort of industry regulation (minimum age etc).

If it's not fully legalized then we can't tax it and then why even bother.

I agree with legalizing marijuana and maybe other drugs, but we still need to stamp out heroin. I'm thinking of dropping in the 101st Airborne to the opium fields and torching the place.

I say with absolute confidence that you don't know anything about heroin.

What don't I know? Guys pay farmers to grow opium instead of food, the opium gets transported to Mexico to avoid customs, then gets smuggled across the border to America, some guy gives it to a gang boss who gives it to his officers to their hood rats to some addict.

Kill the farms and stop the chain. Let the farmers make food.

FYI, Afghanistan is the largest producer of opium in the world. And cannabis
