Re: Tax dollars used for taxi's for people to go to methadone clinics..
Drugs aren't that expensive. And often times, the addicts - especially female addicts, and some male addicts - give up "alternative" forms of payment. Even men who are otherwise heterosexual. My brother was a crack dealer, and male crackheads tried to offer to suck him off for crack all the time.

I blame the addicts for their issues, and I blame mass for giving them a free ride to the clinic. Never saw it in Boston, but I did hear about it from other cities that sometimes churches would provide transportation from halfway houses to clinics.
Often times, we fail to realize what led to the drug addiction in the first place - nor do we care. We don't look at the causes, or any of the "powers that be" that could be contributing factors.
No, conservatism is all about shitting on the powerless in society, while kissing the feet of the powerful.
