Having been sober for a long time, her tolerance was doubtless significantly lowered.
Of course—since the drug was contraband, and therefore available only on the black market—whatever this poor girl did purchase was of utterly unknown composition and dosage.
Thus, the combination of these factors—reduced tolerance and unknown dosage—resulted in an unspeakably tragic incident in which this girl lost her life.
So I'll merely note the fact that the tidy, oversimplified authoritarian "solution" to this societal problem—Prohibition, in all of its draconian glory—unambiguously contributed to the circumstances surrounding this young girl's tragic death—by gratuitously escalating the risks associated with her engaging in recreational drug use.
I'll further opine that if this sh-t were decriminalized, this girl might—just might—still be alive today. Under such circumstances, there would at least remain the possibility of (yet another) rehab, even if she remained an addict—an option which (I submit) would be infinitely preferable to what occurred under the current state of affairs.
Let the floodgates of righteous indignation—and the attendant abuse of those who decry the Tyranny of Prohibition—now gush forth.
I deeply regret the comments which invariably emanate from these threads, as the Prohibitionist crowd and the decriminalization crowd trade sarcastic insults—all while a girl's father grieves—so I'm going to try to refrain from such shenanigans, conclude my remarks, and pray that this poor girl's soul is received into the unconditionally loving arms of our Lord Jesus Christ...
