The Court on Addicts

Another day, another potentially momentous Supreme Court decision: the Court declared it illegal to treat addicts as criminals, arguing that under the Constitution they must be viewed as suffering from a disease. The article above doesn't go into a great deal of detail about the implications of that decision, but it would seem to go hand in hand with the pledge to increase the use of drug courts and the recent decriminalization of drugs toward a more enlightened view of recreational drug use in Mexico.
