The reason drug use is a problem is that we have become a permissive, non-judgmental society, and the majority of Americans think this is a good thing. Having children out of wedlock is ok. Murdering unborn children is simply labeled 'choice'. Abuse of foodstamps and disability has skyrocketed. Society and church used to place firm limits on acceptable behavior, while today people think it's government's responsibility to 'decide' what is acceptable and unacceptable. Government cannot legislate morality and, god help us, we've become a godless immoral society.
