End Heroin’s Devastation in 2017 – Tom Purcell

December 27, 2016

I’m torn in two directions.  I know addicts.  The ones I know struggle to remain sober.

This article says that most heroin addicts started with prescription drugs.  They switch to heroin because it is so much cheaper.  Despite the “affordability” of heroin, many of these addicts soon steal to support their addiction.  Despite the lower cost, addicts can’t work enough to support their habit.  Their addiction devours them.  Prohibition is a colossal failure, AND addiction is not a victimless crime.

Read more- “Once addicted, many users switch from prescription drugs to street heroin. Why? Because street heroin is only about 10 percent the cost of prescription medication, which can run up to $80 a pill.”
