    Duterte has the right idea - kill the dealers without giving them a chance.
    Every country should do it.

    Duterte got rid of the drug dealers.
    Perhaps other countries could follow his lead.

    Why would you think Nazi Germany and a fight against known mass murderers are even similar?
    The Jews were at no fault in Nazi Germany, but we know the dealers kill by the thousand. I have no issue with them being shot.

    A person who sells things to willing buyers is not a mass murderer.

    The Jews were not the only victims of the Nazis. It was a state that was exalted and violent, just as you wish to have.

    When the customers are idiots who usually commits crimes to fund their stupid habit and the dealers commonly hurt and kill to protect their profits, they deserve death.

    Yes, we know Hitler killed a lot of people for a lot of reasons, but dealers kill for cash.
    Executing them is no serious issue.

    I think those who exalt the state are idiots and deserve the misery of living under the thumb of bureaucrats and politicians.

    Thank you for proving my point. You exalt the state and violence against those you deem undesirable.

    Not much violence, just kill them and that's that. A few seconds is plenty, most of that being taking aim.
    This is far more humane than the ways the dealers kill, that being a long, slow, miserable death.

    I wonder what would happen if the state spent all this money that they spend trying to stop the sale of drugs and used it all on drug treatment programs.
    Of course there's the big problem of addicts burglarizing into people's homes, but those could be forced into drug treatment programs.

    MD's are the problem too and patients in Florida pain specialists are a class of specialists you need to have special training and meet legal and ethical requirements in order to prescribe serious narcotics, marijuana under the new state rules is also under serious rules. They track drug prescriptions based on the medical condition for me the state authorizes no pills over ten milligrams of Oxycodone and I hate having to take them so tried hard to reduce my need with my doctors but its hard to replace this drug for pain reduction even with Lyrica at its maximum recommended dose. Sad thing is ninety Oxycodone pills costs a bit over fifty dollars my Lyrica retail without any discounts costs for the same number of pills at a hundred milligrams each is on paper well over eight hundred dollars so which would insurance companies prefer to pay for if they could get away with it?

    But in the end patients need to be responsible to work with their doctors and manage their pain with proper specialists in that field.
