I have people walking up to me on the streets randomly and asking me if I know where there are houses nearby that sell it... and they wonder why so many people are moving out of these areas

The only reason that heroin is a problem is because it is illegal

Because it is illegal, people kill eachother over drug-related business disputes

Herion actually mellows out the idiots who use it. They should be able to legally buy it in any liquor store for a fraction of the price on the street, and that would solve the problem

Millions of addicts in the United States, but our Police and Government don't know where it's comming from... It's a terrible problem for anybody who don't get rich selling it!

Addicts overdosing and killing themselves. So what's the problem?
As long as someone pays the funeral expenses, all is well.

It's called "Dawinism"

Social Security pays less than a grand to cremate an indigent, which is far less than paying for the bum throughout his lifetime

It's called government subsidy and keeps many employed in the business of other peoples miseries.
They should do some heavy investigating with people who are also employed with law enforcement agencies who are suppose to eradicate this problem. I bet if you dig enough or maybe even look in the back of their pick-ups you'll find a little stash of yam yam as one has put it.

no, heroin use is not a growing problem. as a matter of fact, heroin use is way down for everyone in a friggin' statistical way. usage is much lower per person per populace than it has been in 30 years.
but for the purpose of ratings, local news will have us know that heroin use is on the upswing.
especially when white chix die from it.
real newsworthy then, eh?
you people are so very stu- sadly misinformed.

Seek some knowledge and ask yourself why we haven't withdrawn from the Middle East and why we have avoided attacking Afganistan.
Yam yam harvest is plentiful there and is making its way back to our nations front and back doors.

Stop watching our commercialized and sensationalized network news that wants to keep you in the dark and is only interested in profits rather than integral and intelligent journalism without censorship from corporate yahoo's.
Independent media is the source to go to.

hey truther - i know fyck well america is over there encouraging poppy growth. believe it or not the taliban, the legitimate taliban from the 1980's, did not allow opiate farms - they destroyed them. now the faux taliban, as portrayed by our oh so sharp media, are in truth merely a bunch of teenagers with guns. jeez. what happens when male teenagers are given guns? pehaps dothan, al is unique, but in most places 'accidents' happen. violent things.
heroin use is down, dipshit. the opiates are now
taling the form of pills. y'know, loritabs and the like. yeah, yam-yam productivity is up, smartass, but it is not being turned into heroin. it is now in pill form, in the medicine cabinet, waiting for teenagers to steal it and get hooked. USA APPROVED!
i mean, we gotta keep the prison population from dropping. a lot of jobs depend on criminal behaviour ...
listen up bro. i am in the game, and i don't need to seek any knowledge. it comes to me.
oh yeah. one more thing. are you telling me to turn off the corparate b.s. news and search out the truth? then find this out for yourself, truthseeker. heroin use is down. poppy growth is up. you have been, mmm, whats the term? oh yeah.
schoooooled.
