Legalize all recreational drugs and make them so cheap any addict can afford to stay high.

Actually, the most destructive substance is alcohol. Withdrawals alone can kill an alcoholic.

People don't die of opiate/opioid, cocaine or crystal meth withdrawals. They tend to just feel like it.

More likely, getting busted for retail theft, B&E, purse snatching and/or intent to sell than simple possession.

Those with dependence/addiction issues are the more likely to discount the impact of their choices on other people.

If only the impact could be limited to the people who use. Unfortunately, many have a tendency to get behind the wheel and use their cars and trucks to injure and/or kill other people.

They have a tendency to steal anything not nailed down from their employers ( to the extent they can hold a job), retail, their friends and family.

They lie. They cheat. They steal.

There's an old saying about how either an alcoholic or a drug addict will take your wallet. The difference is the drug addict is more likely to help you look for it.

a booze head will help too

How on earth would it be possible to "ramp up" that which is ramped to the gills? Employ nuclear weapons?

...I shouldn't make such suggestions in front of people with questionable mental stability.

It's known that the Mexican cartels are targetting Indian Reservations --- and the federal government simply sits by and allows them to do so.

They're also targetting the inner cities like that of Chicago. There is no war on drugs. Shorty Guzman isn't a multi-billionaire for no reason.
Alcohol remains the single most serious form of substance abuse within the Native American community. And then comes meth, most of it from Mexico. Reservations have been targeted because each has a sovereign state status and limited resources to do much of anything about it. In other words, a reservation becomes a regional hub.
