Fuck that. See, this is one of the few reasons that makes me not want to legalize it. If your own dumb ass gets addicted, it's on you to get off it. I simply abhor the idea of yet another nanny state policy that wastes money on society's lowest common denominator.
If you want to do drugs, go for it. Don't let it turn you into an anchor on society, or to the gulag with you.

That being said, I don't think this solution is practical or good for society. The scheduling of drugs, and restrictions on the purchase and sale of drugs, should be done by independent medical commissions on the basis of overall harm reduction. Some drugs, such as antibiotics or those with extreme side effects, should be limited to prescription only. Other drugs with relatively little harm - marijuana, LSD and other hallucinogens, opium, and so on, should be legal.
The line should be chosen on basis determined by medical professionals but well defined. Probably 'does it cause less social harm than alcohol' since that's our cultural yardstick, but obviously this will change based on usage patterns and the definition of 'social harm'.
