Peter Hitchens lays out a case for the enslavement to evil which illegal substances cause us. He is right–society, as a whole pays, and pays dear for the irrational choices and actions of many. Then, there are compounding consequences: robbery, murder, ruined relationships, physical and emotional pain, psychological issues for the drug-taker and for those they impact.
Here is more proof from Peter Hitchens that many get swept up into a drug culture without knowing or understanding why. Evil may present clothed in a nice gray suit, dark tie and white shirt or it may present as porn to in the white power of a dastardly drug. A Hitchens call to sanity. Not the most gracious approach but then again, maybe in his context, that is what is needed for that audience at the moment.
