There is no wreck until one vehicle smashes into another. There should be no punishment or penalty until there is a victim. The US loves to prosecute for pre-crime....and thought crimes. It's like the movie Minority Report.
If a junkie kills someone, there is a victim and the killer should be prosecuted for murder.
A drug user who dies should have assumed personal responsibility for his actions.
Sorry...but the vast majority here don't need or want to live in a nanny state.
