Dramatis Personae: The System.....well, you know, it's The System
The System: WAR ON DRUGS!!! RAHHHHH!!!!
Junkie: "Well, the war on drugs has taken a real cease-fire in my neighborhood...."*
TS: No, it's working!! WE DON'T NEGOTIATE!!!
J: So system, now that I am a part of you, how do I get out?
TS: Oh....well...since you asked. We'd much prefer that you sought treatment than enroll you into our incredibly violent & expensive prison population.
J: Really? You don't want to throw me in jail?
TS: Not if we can help it. What did you do?
J: Got caught with paraphernalia and some residue.
TS: No problem....if you take our classes, you won't get a record....you know, first offence and all that. Come back in a month!
J: Cool....uhh....I'm still an addict though. What should I do until then?
