Drugs a cop-out
WHAT a load of dribble, Dieter Moeckel (ITC, 23/7). If people feel a need to use illegal drugs because they are not of a legal age to drink alcohol, there are bigger problems at hand than not being able to access alcohol. The best way to tackle illegal drug use and alcohol abuse issues is to have zero tolerance in society to these issues. People who use illegal drugs and abuse alcohol, as a healing or coping method to deal with something bad that has happened in their life or are bored or cannot cope with life, is a complete cop-out and a lazy action on their behalf in dealing with their issues. There is enough help out there for people. All it requires is self-motivation to do something productive about their problems.
