Poison the incoming heroin and the cops won't have to do much more work cause they will all die off. If it really is such a issue then do it and let's all be done with this crap. Bunch of junkies already overdosing as it is. Let em all die, who care?

The poppy seeds sold in grocery stores are the real deal. Plant them in the spring and find out. You can grow your own opium for free. Ima gonna sling em everywhere along the roadsides this spring and hopefully start some landraces. Then they'll be free opium to anyone that wants to partake.

I'm completely serious. Growing opium poppies is totally legal. Just don't get caught with finished product.
Ummm the poppy seeds u buy here in the states is not the same poppy seeds that make opium.

Is it a coincidence that heroin is such a hot commodity after all these wars in the middle east?? I doubt it. not to mention how these streets were flooded with pills for the last 10 years. dry up the pills and everyone turns to heroin. hook line and sinker.

Most legitimate would not think of trying heroin. Legitimate patients take their medicine as prescribed. It is no surprise that addicts are switching to heroin because it's much cheaper than black market prescription drugs. Those with a legitimate need for pain medicines should be able to get them but this manufactured crisis has made it hard on real patients!

A lot of illegitimate patients want others to believe that they are legitimate...some even want to believe it themselves.
