Criminalization Of Drugs And Alcohol Addiction

Criminalization Of Drugs And Alcohol Addiction

In many place in the world, alcohol is given freely in casinos, parties and but not limited to hotels and is more or less forced on you either to make a person spend more money, to be a part of the party and but not limited to get a person to come back to that hotel.

Of course it is widely known that you shouldn’t walk the streets or drive a car while intoxicated. When alcohol enters a persons system, from that moment that person does not and under any amount of alcohol consumption will they think the same. Therefore that person is mentally impaired from the word go. The person that consumes the alcohol can not legally make a choice for themselves.

If a person that is intoxicated, that person can not enter into a legal agreement. When a person or company files a lawsuit on a person that was intoxicated while entering into the agreement the lawsuit will most likely be thrown out of court as the person that had been intoxicated could not in their right mind enter into a legal agreement. This has been shown in several courts.

When criminal institutions file criminal charges on a person for drugs and/or alcohol for being in any way intoxicated, drugs or alcohol, they are filing charges on a mentally ill person. In filing charges on a person that is intoxicated in any way, that person that is intoxicated can not in their right mind enter into a legal agreement. Criminal institutions in fact will make persons intoxicated sign legal documents while being that of the intoxicated.

There is a broad battle in America and abroad that are debating such things and they should be debated and resolved because there are millions of people in jails and prisons for having a harmless drink of alcohol and/or doing drugs when they should have been entered into a medical facility or just left alone. Drug runners, smugglers, and pushers and people that have committed murder or injury by driving drunk or under the influence of drugs however should be the only persons in jails and prisons.

It is well known that you can not treat and/or rehabilitate a person for drugs and alcohol by criminalizing them. Several countries have learned to lower their drug and alcohol usage in other ways besides criminalizing users of drugs and alcohol. These methods have been medical attention or the rise in the price of drugs and alcohol. The whole world has a drug and alcohol problem and no nation can afford to put every person that uses drugs and alcohol in jail or prison.
