When they can’t put 2 and 2 together

Here is a article that was recently published in the WASHINGTON POST 20 Percent in Nation Suffer Mental Illness, Report Says
According to the article About 20 percent of American adults suffer some sort of mental illness each year, and about 5 percent experience a serious disorder that disrupts work, family or social life, according to a government report released Thursday.
Amazing this per-cent is in the same ball-park as the per-cent of the population that abuses some substance – other than alcohol & tobacco.

Also according to the article … Although drug and alcohol abuse qualify as mental disorders in psychiatry’s diagnostic manual… so if our society is “going after” or condemning people who abuse drugs… we are classifying a portion of our population with a recognized – diagnosable – mental health disorder – AS CRIMINALS.
How warped is this ?
