From a Seattle Times article detailing the legislative debate over drug possession criminalization:
“Much of the debate on either side has focused on how to compel people with drug problems to get treatment, with some believing criminal penalties are necessary to force that to happen.”
It’s amazing to me that people really believe you can simply *compel* a person to solve their addictions...like, it has never ever worked that way.
