helloow, again, fellow "junkies." just a thought. from 'the gospel according to warren, ch2v18 (or something like that) "there is no worse villany than an excess of good intentions."
in england during the 60's, some landlords were less than supportive of their tennants, evicting them for no apparent reason and raising their rents several times a year. parliament, in it's infinite wisdom, passed tennants' rights laws so that it is all but impossible to get a tennent evicted. consequence: no more (or at least very little) rental property in england.
there is a drug epidemic in america (i'd actualy like to see audited statistics on this, though - i wonder if this is a real epidemic or a media frenzy). in its infinite stupidity the american congress passes some very hardhitting legislation (a congressman can't be seen as being "soft" on drugs now, can he?). Rather than protect our northern and southern borders, where the majority of the illegal drugs are coming from, threy attack what they can control: docters and hospitals.
several years ago, the most renowned pm doctoer in the us was arrested, tried and convicted for over-prescribing narcotics to his "hopeless" pm patients. the government didn't have to say a word. every pm dr in the country got the message: you may be next.
i know, i'm flogging a dead horse here.
