    Isn't that a bit extreme?

    I've lost at least 4 friends to heroin.

    Marijuana on the other hand isn't much better, or worse than alcohol & can be taxed.

    Depends on the town.

    In my current town Ive seen no fights at the bar.

    Past town 1 guy started 8 fights with his friends mostly at the bar.
    Besides many, many more I witnessed.

    Well 1 blew his head off due to heroin withdrawal.

    I'm not so sure that one is due to cutting drugs.

    I still count it though.

    people do OD -and not just because of the cut.
    it;s because drug use is "shameful" hidden and extremely illegal.
    There is no way for most people to talk about dosing and safety.

    I've been around since the 60's -did my fair share -
    but i also used a Physicians Desk Reference to understand tolerances and cross use

    we we serious about getting high..lol

    People always tend to over do things.

    Look at alcohol, how many alcoholics follow the dosing recommendations?

    again though alcohol is out in front
    people go to a bar -it's public -they cut you off etc.

    none of that with dope -you're on your own. if you try to get info, you are called an addict

    fuck all that -it's a main reason people die. isolated - look at rock stars -same thing- isolated
    Tom Petty was on pain killers and Xanax - it stopped his heart. no way he should be doing that set

    well that's nice "no hope in dope" we used to say
    But putting your head in the ground doesn't address societal problems -people USE

    the key is "harm reduction"

    that sucks for him, but making heroin illegal surely didn't help him, did it?

    The vast majority of people aren't going to go out and try heroin just because it is decriminalized. If addiction is treated like a mental health problem (which it is) these now non-criminals will have a better time getting help with less stigma attached. Portugal decriminalized all drugs and there nationwide addiction rates went down.

    Furthermore you cut the legs off of the billion dollar black market which funds criminal gangs and thugs.
