  1. What drugs were these that were abused?

    DO people realize that Paracetamol is a drug and when you take more than recommended then essentially, you are abusing it?

    My point is, why is this a crime? Drugs are only misused if they are being supplied with the intent of an adverse effect on the masses, where is the proof here?

    We are trying for our baby for the last two months and this is strange , because I could be accused of abusing vitabiotics pregnancy tablets.

    Where is the line?

    Thanks

  2. Judicial reforms must include reducing some drug related cases as misdemeanors. Throwing People in jail for every little marijuana you find on them is not helping the state or the person to reform. Government spending more money feeding prisoners when they could be making more money if you made these people pay guilty fees instead. We need reforms in Judiciary
