Heroin is Harmless

I am not naive or callous. As a public defender I frequently interviewed heroin addicts upon their incarceration. I saw firsthand these people going through withdrawal and I saw the tragedies their lives had become. However, almost all – if not all – of the damage heroin had inflicted upon these people and their families was due to the drug’s criminalization. I will explain.

While I have no general disagreements with this blog, it certainly has a ‘kook’ aspect to it. I believe in the legalization, or the repeal of drug prohibition, or whatever you want to call it. I’m a supporter of the removal of all vice/sin laws, including prostitution. But I certainly wouldn’t encourage the use of seriously addictive drugs. The addictive property of Heroin is what makes it dangerous.

It’s certainly not Cato, but it sure is reasonable and amusing. Maybe that’s why I like this blog so much.
