thanks for the photos

but the impression is these photos are an authoritarian message from the government, hence the prison bars and portrayal of drugs in rainbow candy colours, with a "bokeh" unfocussed image.

on the one hand, I think there needs to be treatment centres for drug addicts, and sometimes this needs to be very restrictive

but on the other hand, the emphasis should be on saving lives, not punishment

these photos are about punishment

No they are not about punishment .........

Even the normally biased BBC did a documentary on this and focused on young women who had first been forced into prostitution and then drug dealing  ..........

This seemingly 'Draconian' system was almost their only hope to be rehabilitated  ........

In our societies we allow them to wallow in their own body waste and create communities with high crime rates  .........

The film 'Train-Spotting' was one such commentary on drug addiction in the UK  .........

We now have babies being born to all sorts of addiction and being weaned off the filth  ........

Where is their dignity and human rights  .........  ?

Certainly not from the people that become participants in the misery of human life  ..........

Who should all be locked up in the first place  .........

Most of these people have been arrested for drug dealing and related issues  ..........

They are weaned off drugs and counselled in order to return to the real world  ..........

I doubt it is the 'Ritz', but the alternative is daily abuse and an early death on the outside ..........
