What's Your Views On Drugs?

Someone said :
And as for heroin/methadone and Dublin, there aren't many clearer demonstrations of where an informal tolerance approach leads; I don't think the results are good.

It is understandable how the lay person bases their opinion of heroin addicts or methadone replacement on the people they see on the street, but they are not seeing the big picture, or the many thousand heroin addicts or people on replacement therapy (such as methadone) who are living with the addiction and functioning.
For every dozen junkies you see on the street there are hundreds going to work and raising families.

The largest opiate addiction is pain killers (opiates, mostly codeine) and the typical addict is the average mother or father or brother or sister who were prescribed medication for accidents. But you dont see them on the street begging or mugging so they are not equated with opiate addiction.

Replacement therapy has kept the vast majority from falling between the cracks. So to say it does not work or the results are not good is down to not actually seeing the results but presuming that what you see on the streets are it.

Have to agree with you to a certain extent, there is a place for replacement therapy and it can improve peoples lives. It's certainly preferable to the lock em all up or worse attitudes.

My problem is the low level tolerance of dealing and open heroin use in certain parts of the city, including open methadone trading. It has the worst characteristics of ilegality (dodgy supplies, organised crime involvement etc) with the worst aspects of legality (high visibility, ease of access).
I also think it should be considered a criminal offense to discard a used syringe on the street or in other public areas.

I don't drink, I don't smoke and I don't do drugs. What other people want to do with their bodies has nothing to do with me (unless they are begging at my every step or robbing my house, or mugging me, or raping me).

I personally don't like drugs but I am not going to dictate to other fully grown adults about what they can pt in their bodies.

Police are stupid making reports like this.
A logo, colour, size, shape, taste or smell is not an indication of what is in a pill.
Anyone with a specific press can make pills containing anything.
What often happens is a specific pill gets a good reputation so other people produce tons of pills that contain relatively inexpensive research chemicals or no drug at all and sell them to eager punters.

It is not only pointless to say that a specific pill is dangerous, it is also pretty dangerous advice itself. Some people will presume that by avoiding all pills of a specific logo they will be safe.

What the police need to do is to raise awareness of testing kits that can be used to determine what drug a pill or powder contains. People are not going to stop taking drugs, but they should be educated in how to minimise the risks involved.

Which would be better, Legalising it and selling it with vat on it? Keeping it illegal, at a high cost to the taxpayer and state?

Someone said :

They should be legalised!

Not 100% legalised but regulated.

Those who want a free for all would do well to look at what happened to this woman from taking crystal meth for 3.5 years. Not so glamorous now is it? http://www.oprah.com/oprahshow/Between-Life-and-Death/15



Someone said :
These pictures show the tragic toll that crystal meth can take on a person's physical appearance. Bret King, a jail deputy in Oregon, took these photos of a woman on crystal meth three and a half years apart. ( www.co.multnomah.or.us/sheriff/faces_of_meth.htm)

Debra Jay explains the change in the woman's appearance. "First of all, you see all the sores on her face? When you're using crystal meth, they start thinking bugs are under their skin and they start itching all the time. They call it 'crank bugs.' They get obsessive about it and then they started digging holes. They try to dig the bugs out of their skin. You see the holes on her face, if you could see the rest of her body… And then what happens, these sores become infected because typically where they're using these drugs, you cannot believe the filth."

I see people who have a strong addiction to hard substances on a daily basis as i work in the area. it completely destroys peoples lives,the loose family, partners, they're on a methadone maintenance programme for the rest of their lives.. it can be sad to see this in younger people.
