When the American voting public finally wakes up, gets their head out of their collective asses and realize how much money is being expended for this laughably preposterous war on drugs...which really is nothing more than a thinly veiled crusade against the hippie subculture, then maybe they can release all of these nonviolent drug offenders clogging up the jails and prisons and reserve that room for the violent offenders that have perpetrated unconscionable acts against their fellow man and in the process fix the god damn economy.

The war on drugs effectively predates the hippies, before they came along it was about blacks and browns mostly. Also hippies, in their orginal form at least, stopped being nationally relevant a long time ago.

All this aside...I'd actually be in favor of a War on Prescription Drug Abuse. Why don't we start by holding these quack psychotherapists and psychiatrists who prescribe Adderall and Ritalin to children as young as 10 years old accountable?. We should start throwing these people in jail in the place of the nonviolent drug offenders. They're waging a war on the wrong drugs. Kids today aren't smoking pot...they're doing meth and snorting Xanax and Oxycontin. If they'd refocus their attention on the ACTUAL problem, maybe they'd get some results.

Wrong. The War on Drugs was a Nixon administration idea, that quite obviously began because they were radically anti-hippie. It began in earnest in 1968, which is the heart of the Hippie era.

RIGHT ON BROTHER .

I was sent to a psychiatrist in my early teens and she wanted to me to take prescription psych drugs, it was only my parents aversion to that particular therapy that saved me from that BS.

Who is really to blame if an 18 year old girl has a prescription drug habit ?

According to the arrest affidavit it was not her prescription and she was found with three green baggies full of Xanax, hence the charge of illegal possession of Xanax.

It seems a complete answer.

She was abusing a drug that was not being prescribed to her.

It doesn't matter if it was her prescription or not, the point still stands that she's got an addiction to prescription drugs and that is the main problem here, not her smart ass attitude or anything else. You want to eliminate a problem, you cut the head off. The head in this case is her addiction to Xanax. Furthermore, you don't solve this problem by throwing her in jail because of an outburst in court, you solve it by sentencing her to rehab or a similar program so she can kick the habit.

You do not seem to comprehend my question.

WHY does a teenage girl have a prescription drug problem .

Why is this not the fault of the parents who have failed in their duty to protect their daughter from these drugs ?

Your rationality in defiance of "the facts" and "the law" is great. If only you used paragraphs :P

My hat goes off to you sir.

Why?

Because Zanax bars are an illegal street drug?

You could say that parents have failed to protect their children from any number of drugs.so your question is of little relevance.

A teenage girl does not reach the age of 18 and just aquire a prescription drug habbit out of the blue.

The reason for her drug habit is very relevant , one which the judge should be trying to ascertain in order to make a balanced judgement , one which will help this girl overcome her problems.
