There is a HUGE heroin problem in the suburbs where teenagers are getting hooked and then doing all these break ins and stealing to support their habit. And then there is no rehab available because they can;'t hold jobs and have health insurance. These dealers really need the book thrown at them. They are DESTROYING lives.

No one forced the heroin down their throats. Not only do the dealers need to be thrown in jail, but also the user should they choose a life of crime to support their habit. It was their choice to use...now face the consequences. Too bad if their addicted.

Would you say the same about all the coffee addicts? Watch them go through withdrawal, headaches, irritability, inability to concentrate or work.

Would you say the same about the alcohol addicts? Unlike heroin, alcohol withdrawal can literally kill the addict.

Would you say the same about nicotine addicts? After all, nicotine is as addictive as heroin. Prohibit nicotine and watch a huge black market appear, full of organized crime, corruption of governments and finance, retailing street gangs shooting up their turf wars and contract disputes. And of course you'd see the product cut or treated with deadly or toxic adulterants. You'd see in cigarettes (like we did see in alcohol prohibition) the same exact problems we see in heroin prohibition today.

Would you say the same about all those people hooked on anti-depressants, tranquilizers, anti-anxiety or other psych meds? Or those who can't have sex without Viagra? Or those hooked on pain killers?

Would you say the same about those who are obese, hooked on junk food, fatty foods or other known killer foods?

Would you say the same for those hooked on a thrill, riding motorcycles or rock-climbing or sky-diving?

Or what about those hooked on porn or gambling? Would you also like to see them punished in violent prisons full of diseases and dehumanizing conditions in so many ways?

After all, the laws prohibiting certain drugs while allowing so many other drugs as well as other vices and risks and health hazards.....we see these laws are nothing but culture war, sadistic use of prisons and police to hurt those people who choose different drugs or vices than the people who cheer on the culture war.

The drug war laws make the drugs more dangerous, the streets more dangerous, and they waste police and court resources. All the while, the drug war fails to cut demand or supply, instead just pushing the huge commerce into the black market where kids can be part of the action and are never asked for proof of age. Drug prohibition is a hollow moral grandstanding that in practice makes many problems worse and solves none. It is the worst possible drug policy for these reasons.

All those other addictions, dont cause people to become monsters and break into homes, robbing, raping and killing. But I could be wrong....maybe some guy that didnt have his morning Folgers would feel the need to rape a woman...and kill her. What do you think? Now go smoke on that one for awhile. Drugs causes a person to do crazy things to support their addiction. I still say, you choose your poison, you live with it..or die by it. Period.

Drug laws are the entire problem. Drug laws create artificial value, and thus all related crime. Criminals cannot profit from coffee or alcohol because they are legal. Too bad we never learned from the alcohol prohibition experiment. This was a failure just like heroin prohibition.

You're an idiot. What about the people who rape and kill that aren't on drugs, and all the non-violet drug addicts? You're argument is flawed and you're probably in your 60s and living in the past. The government gives a ton of money to Big Pharma to push their pills, then when someone switches to a cheaper drug like heroin they get arrested for it. If a drug user isn't hurting anyone there should be no consequence. If they're raping and killing and breaking into homes there should be. It's pretty simple actually.
