You are 100% correct.
Addicts elect to become mortally wounded, and then spend the rest of their lives injuring others — their victims, their families, the general citizens who pick up their costs.
Sometimes the injuries that addicts inflict are fatal.
But what can we do?
We can’t just let them roam the earth carjacking and breaking in to people’s homes.
I suggest “harm mitigation” instead of useless attempts to fix them.
We could assign them to an agency to pay for their costs of living in a cheap apartment.
Then they can consume drugs in controlled conditions as much as they like.
We’d save a fortune — all of which could go directly to their many victims.
