At the age of 14 and above they are still subject to the law in China. While it is all very reassuring to parents in having their children "excused for making a mistake", the excessively liberal attitudes towards drug use has been a large part of the reason why the use of drugs now has a deathgrip in much of the world. It is destroying society much in the way that heroin spread like a disease in China.

The point is that Chinese people above the age of 13 are subject to Chinese law, no exceptions just because it is fashionable amongst certain sections of society to indulge in mind altering drugs. If you treat children with the same leniency as with adults committing traffic offences then it simply becomes a badge of honour. The penalty in law MUST reflect the seriousness of taking mind altering drugs if it is to act as a deterrent. However, dumping 14 year old out of education onto the streets is also going to be counter productive. Perhaps teaming up with professionals at the weekends working to help addicts going through withdrawal might prove a more lasting deterrent.

These minors have been abused by adult drug peddlars and consumers.


When I was a teenager it was possible to buy mind altering, illegal, drugs and neither I nor any of my friends ever felt inclined to use them so I don't accept this BS about blaming others. Perhaps if they were strapped to a table while someone else forced them to become users then you might have a valid point but for the overwhelming majority of us it is a question of making a personal decision and having self respect.
But perhaps if known drug users were barred from the entertainment and fashion industry where they act as role models it could go a long way towards sending a message to young people.

Unsurprisingly I think that China should move resources from policing things that in western eyes need no policing, and put them to things like catching drug traffickers, or educating the youth in these border areas or where ever.

Underage youth rarely run drugs over the border and that's where the focus should be.

Oh, and get rid of the corrupt police.
