That's some bad shit. The saddest part of it is heroin would be dirt (and I mean dirt) cheap if it wasn't for the war on drugs. Instead, we choose to enrich gangs, corrupt police departments, and imprison addicts. There was a long-term study in Great Britain on heroin users and they found that as long as they can get pure heroin they can lead pretty normal lives. I'm not suggesting anyone go out and buy themselves a kit and find a connection, it's horribly addictive, but the alternatives are worse.

Most of you are blind. The Gov. wants these things to happen.
The Gov. is the biggest dealers anywhere.
