Many politicians shy away from condeming users of illicit drugs. One suspects that’s because they have friends and family who fall into this category, and may well do so themselves. Instead we’re told of those evil, evil, manipulative drug dealers who risk their liberty to give the little darlings what they want.
While not a user of illicit drugs myself, situation and circumstance in my travels has seen me socialising with a number of drug dealers. I think they liked that I wasn’t asking them for anything, and I liked that they were generous to a fault when it was their round.
So personally I don’t consider dealers to be any more or less culpable than users.
