Oh, you mean the absolutely desperate heroin addicts, who are clearly not having a great time of it.
I meant the mouthy, cocksure, work-shy dealers. The real blight of the neighbourhood.

The OP is talking about users not dealers, if you have 2 dealers in your street though (and presumably each of those dealers supports several users) it should give some sense of the scale of the problems. About time we changed our attitudes towards it no?

The OP was taking a pot-shot at a very easy target. Is it to be expected that the police are going to be interested in searching the homes of these desperate people? Of course not, it was just a cheap shot at the weak.
However if they were to look a little further down the road then that might prove more fruitful,

They have been caught stealing loads of things from people property including animals and that's okay cause they take drugs is it ??

@ Copy&Paste - Cannabis can be mildly addictive, in the same way as coffee can. Cannabis and caffeine would be better comparisons of their levels of addiction and danger to the user. I personally find Netflix boxsets more addictive than cannabis and sure many others do as well.
Meanwhile, alcohol is more addictive than both, and much more physically damaging and difficult as a habit to kick. Tobacco is only less addictive than crack and heroin. People are demonising the wrong substances (if they feel such an urge to demonise anything at all).

All drugs are addictive as well as smoking and alcohol !! So what your saying is its okay to have these type of people around our children taking money from children too as well as adults and for them to sit outside shops begging and playing crappy music a 10 year old can do its fine cause they have an addiction ?? These people should be monitored by social services mental health teams and police but sadly due to the government they are allowed to get away with it !!

Just for the benefit of those who haven't given it the depth of thought that you clearly have, could you just outline your solution to the problems that you have mentioned?

So with the comments I get bk I must be the only one who thinks there's a problem with them doing what they do .. I've seen them take money of kids I've seen them taking and walking away with cats and dogs and yet they still get sympathy for others that think it's okay to do it maybe if they did something you didn't like your attitude maybe slightly different their are addicts who only do drugs as and when they feel but these idiots who are desperate to get their drugs no matter what they take in the process need to be placed in a unit away from children and society they walk round town or run as they are on a high sit in town pleading for help just to feed their sick habits

Well Scooby Doo: " These people should be monitored by social services mental health teams and police but sadly due to the government they are allowed to get away with it !!"
This just shows how little you know about things, tbh. Drug use or addiction is only issue when it involves parents, because of potential risk to their children. Adult Social Care can barely meet the needs of the critically ill and disabled, they don't have the resources to take on addiction as well.
Mental health teams won't work with addicts or alcoholics, because their addiction makes diagnosis and treatment virtually impossible. This is particularly troubling, as many addicts become addicted because they are self-medicating because of mental health issues.
While there is some mental health support in alcohol/substance misuse services, it is limited and can only deal with a very small number of service users.
In an ideal world, all these services would be much better funded, but people voted for more austerity, so there's little likelihood of that happening any time soon.
