Well, it's about time. A study in the New England Journal of Medicine based on research conducted by (natch) Canadians suggests that the best way to treat heroin addicts is... prescriptions for heroin.
But see, your basic judeo-christian ethic prevents the implementation of any common sense drug policy. Remember the motto, printed in large germanic gilt letters across page xii of the Gutenberg bible:At any given time, someone, somewhere is trying to do something that feels good. This must be prevented at all costs, even that of their worthless lives...
The first comment at Edroso's post is a funny example of kneejerk anti-corporatism: you shouldn't do it because pharmaceutical companies will profit.
Who would Jesus get stoned?
My reinvented wheel -- let me show you it.you shouldn't do it because pharmaceutical companies will profit.Poppy. Razor-blade. Latex. Purifying. I see no role for the pharma company here.According to Capcha, the patent on apsparin has expired, so now I can get cheap generic ointment for that troublesome groin infection.
Poppy. Razor-blade. Latex. Purifying. I see no role for the pharma company here.I believe we already have such systems in place.
Ron White on medicinal marijuana:"They asked me what symptoms I had that medicinal marijuana would help. I told 'em it really bums me out when I run out of pot, and that marijuana cures that."
It should come as no surprise that Ben Goldacre has some useful background information on heroin prescription, or that nothing has changed in the 11 years since he wrote it.
Mr. Goldacre is the man alright.Myself, I think that the less legitimate sellers of heroin might be the ones to really look out for. There is some mighty big chunks of cash involved and they do not take kindly to gubbermint interactions.Capch warns of high levels of dions.
Hasn't it been working fairly well in Merrie Olde England for a few yrs.? Like, 50 or so?The orange plastic needle caps literally covering the floor of the Picadilly Circus tube station's men's loo (closest stop to the 24-hr. chemist's) may have been an unintended consequence.
There is some mighty big chunks of cash involved As soon as you legalize it, the big money vanishes. Market forces and all that.
Yeah.It's certainly worked that way for prescription drugs...
Well, the patent on smack must have expired by now. As far as prescription drugs go I can find an interesting variety pretty cheap at the dives in the wrong part of town...
What, then, can you find in the right part of town?You may not be doing it correctly.
What, then, can you find in the right part of town?Lazarus, obviously.
