Description:
Politics in a democracy must be responsive to public needs. Yet for far too long our State paid little attention to the rising drugs phenomenon, its causes, impact and consequences. For a decade and more, this State failed to tackle effectively the spread in the illicit trafficking and pushing of opiates, the destruction of the lives of individuals, the havoc wrought in communities. It neglected adequately to address also the underlying forces at work in such communities that fed from within the drug phenomenon - their marginalisation within the formal economy; the geographical marginalisation that re-enforced economic marginalisation; misguided approaches to public housing policy. Deficiencies in education and social policies also, for example, compounded the other forces at work. Work itself was made scarce in these communities. The result was a spiral of decline.
