So, this BOH will have crack & meth, and not just heroin? Or, do we just give them the most popular drug at the time? Crack is the most prevalent drug on the street now....so if this BOH doesn't "stock" that drug, THOSE dealers are still spreading their filth, aren't they? So, let's just legalize EVERYTHING, that way NOTHING will ever harm society again.
A Libertarian society is not acceptable IMHO. Why should we reward addiction??
Why should your socialistic opinion about libertarians be viewed as honest?
Why should we reward addiction??
The treatment of addicts is not a reward.
- And we see the alternative, in the war on drugs, guns, and liberty: -- all three of which you 'apparently' support.
Drug addicts, IMHO - based partly on my observation of a few, have destroyed their lives and, unless they want to kick the habit, their isn't anything I can do to really help them. The damage their addiction causes society is staggering and, IMHO, unaffordable.
To belabor the obvious and repeat myself let me point out that I don't favor legalization. I do favor taking any profit out of dealing in drugs.
The question of what drugs the Boards of Health need to maintain should be left up to them. My answer would be to provide - only to those who have a documented addiction - anything addicts are taking.
To further clarify my position you need to recognize that I don't care about the drug addicts. If they OD I only hope they'll do it somewhere other than the middle of the road so they don't create a traffic problem. The people I'm concerned about are those not addicted to drugs - the girl who doesn't get hooked and become a prostitute, the old lady who can walk down the street without fearing someone will kill her for her wedding ring's street value and all the rest of us.
