Europe: Curing, not punishing, addicts

This Op-Ed is a little simplistic, but does a decent job illuminating the difference in approaches. However, I find the headline to be the most striking thing about it. The problem I have with drug policy in some European countries isn’t their lack of enforcement, it’s the overemphasis on maintenance and harm reduction. Curing, as the headline suggests, does not appear to be a goal at all.
