The Israelites had traveled in the wilderness for forty years until all the men who were old enough to fight in battle when they left Egypt had died.

A journey that can take eleven days will take forty years and they will not even cross-over.
A solution to drugs is not legalizing it. A man may find temporary pleasure by taking drugs, , alcohol, women, thinking that’s where they will find joy or whatever missing in their lives. Soon or later they’ll realize they were chasing after the wind.
No one can fill their void with creations and only their Creator can fulfill.
