Why do we continue to believe that letting drug addicts 'hit rock bottom' is a good thing?

Why do we continue to believe that letting drug addicts 'hit rock bottom' is a good thing? | Drugs and Attitudes | Scoop.it

It’s time to stop punishing and start creating solutions to the walls of intolerance and hatred we’ve built. These steps, though seemingly small, can create a new social context, one that redefines the addict from a non-person to a person, a criminal to a citizen, someone “diseased” to someone who just needs love, belonging and a community, just like me.

ARTICLE: Stronger evidence is needed before accepting cannabis has significant role in schizophrenia

ARTICLE: Stronger evidence is needed before accepting cannabis has significant role in  schizophrenia | Drugs and Attitudes | Scoop.it

"From a scientific perspective, however, the extent to which use of cannabis leads to an increased incidence of schizophrenia, independently of confounding characteristics and separate from effects of chronic intoxication, remains uncertain. Whether preventing cannabis use will have any substantial impact on preventing psychotic disorders in the population, or within specific subgroups at risk, is yet to be adequately determined."
