I'm also one of the few who are against legalizing drugs. I hope that never happens.
As for race, my opinion is that until minorities as a whole, police their own and quit canonizing their offspring when they do wrong, that problem will continue.
Another can of worms is the lottery. I've seen loads of people spend money that they could not afford to lose and try to hit it big. Then they have nothing left to feed their families or pay bills with.
Having had an alcoholic father, I've also lived that nightmare.
