    But you are again just treating the symptom, drug abuse, not what leads people to drugs.
    Not what leads people to taking drugs?

    You mean coping with being human?

    Destitute.

    Trump wanted to help Americans, no? The forgotten? That was his big thing. So, go do it. Help all those towns where people have nothing, no jobs, nothing.

    People take drugs because they make you feel good.

    It would seem the only sure remedy is remove the drugs. Alcohol was removed during Prohibition and bootleg whiskey was the result. The difference is that bootleg drugs are far harder to make and the chemicals to make them are easier to control than corn.

    America has a problem with gangs. Given that America First is the motto, how do you justify sending troops to another country while not having sorted out your **** at home?
    It/s only been the motto for a couple of weeks. But since you mentioned it, Trump has put the mayor of Chicago on notice

    No.

    You make them feel good in other ways. Drugs are just a substitute.

    Trump tweets a lot of things.

    He has shown to follow through. But until he does the point stands.

    No that's incredibly naive.

    Human beings use all kinds of substances and habits to stave off boredom and cope with the pressures of life.

    There's a clear relationship for pretty much everything you want there to be.

    That's why everything increases the risk of getting cancer.

    My explanation is science, fact not a loose linkage.

    I could use my explanation to explain your link.

    Problem is, with a population of ~120m it would suddenly become the most powerful state in the union. It would really need to be 5 or 6 states, but even then it would be an incredibly powerful voting bloc.
    There are already about 30m people of Mexican origin living in the US. It's not hard to imagine a situation in 25 years time when it looks much more viable that Mexico could be a US state. It already is in some ways, as, arguably, are many Latin American countries. The only real issue is that like us in Europe, they are deeply affected by US policies but with no say in them.

    People who do psychology degrees do neuropsychology and behaviourism.

    I have no need to read up, I already did.
