    is doing great. But I cannot agree that jail and the court system are the "only hope" of breaking an addiction to meth. I live in the meth capital of Amerika and I've seen lots of people's lives go bad fast on that drug. Years ago it was cocaine, to freebase, then to crack. Very ugly.

    And I've seen quite a few people beat the addiction without authoritarian involvement. Well, not exactly. They were uniformly 'cured' when they Found God. Mostly from evangelical groups who kind of specialize in these sort of lost souls. they wake up from the religious thrall after awhile, but they do stay cured from the drugs.

    Most useful thing I've ever seen evangelism accomplish.
