Re: Winnipeg in grips of meth problem, say police (Aug. 27)

Winnipeg police spokesman Const. Jay Murray is wrong when he says "the
majority of property crime in the city is related to the
methamphetamine subculture." Drug prohibition is responsible, just as
it was when cocaine was the drug de jour in the past.

The drug problem boils down to some people want to use those drugs and
other people don't want them to.

The short of it is that it is none of your business what drugs the
next door neighbours are using since none of that use harms you.

Repeal drug prohibition and the majority of property crime would end
since these drugs that people want could be obtained for cheap and of
a known purity at the local pharmacy.
