I know most people may not like what I have to say, but here goes.

We (collectively) are not doing a good job of treating drug 
addiction. One example is that of Dr. Graves' patients. If the 
Pensacola News Journal reported it accurately, then almost all of his 
patients were addicts.

Now, everyone wants to put him in jail and throw away the key, but if 
you really step back and look at it, like it or not, maybe there are 
not enough drug treatment centers to take care of the demand.

We are being told there is a war on drugs, but where is the treatment 
to reduce the demand?

Please think about what I've said, and then let your conscience be your guide.
