German Leftist Party Pushes to Give Free Crystal Meth to Drug Addicts
'Therapeutic support' for drug addicts
A leftist party in Germany is pushing to give free crystal meth to rug addicts in an effort to “reduce the pressure” on the prosecution of drug dealers, according to reports.
A motion filed in parliament states drug users must be “consistently protected from criminal prosecution," and supplied at the expense of taxpayers.
Remix News reported:
“As reported by the German news outlet Junge Freiheit, hard drugs such as methamphetamine would be distributed to addicts under close “therapeutic support” to bring down criminal prosecutions; other hard drugs such as morphine, ecstasy, cocaine, LSD, and even heroin would no longer be prosecuted if users were found purchasing or possessing small quantities."
Decriminalizing hard drugs would follow in the footsteps of policies already implemented that have led to federal states not prosecuting people who are found in possession of small quantities of marijuana.
Amphetamine abuse is already a massive problem in Germany, with crystal meth offenses rising 2020 by 18.9 percent.
That number has likely significantly worsened since those figures were published as a result of COVID-19 lockdowns.
Leftists in Germany previously began a national conversation about legalizing crystal meth back in 2015.
The enlightened liberal policy of handing out free drugs and needles to drug addicts while refusing to prosecute those found in possession of hard drugs has led to an absolute nightmare in places like San Francisco and Los Angeles.
In San Francisco, where millions of free needles are given to drug addicts every year, the streets are littered with them while semi-conscious meth heads and heroin junkies lie prostrate on the sidewalk.

Last year, California's radical leaders proposed similar measures by paying drug addicts to stay sober as the state sees massive increases in drug overdose deaths.
After using the method on military veterans, the federal government claims it is an effective way to get people to stop using drugs like cocaine and methamphetamine.
Drugs addicts would receive incentives or payments for every negative drug test over a period of time.
People who complete the treatment without any positive tests will be able to earn a few hundred dollars.
While opioids have pharmaceutical treatments to help get people sober, there are none for stimulants like methamphetamine and cocaine.
"There is a clear kind of hole in regards to treatment services for individuals who have a stimulant use disorder," said Jacey Cooper, director of California's Medicaid program.
"At this point (contingency management) is the only thing people are pointing to that has been effective."
