"Because the government didn't go for the Chairman Mao option." Cheryl hated having to deal with cokeheads 24/7
Chairman Mao had killed most of opium dealers and those addicts who the Communist Party could not rehabilitate. That tactic was not an option in the USA, although PM Thaksin of Thailand had death squads murder most than 3000 suspected druggie in his War on Drugs.
