I can't endorse this kind of paternalistic protectionism. People abuse narcotics and opioids. This isn't news. The methadone world is rife with people who want someone else to be responsible for them. Hence the clinic mentality. I favor the 'juice bar' approach they use in Switzerland. We keep hearing there's a cost to freedom. Maybe the cost to freedom includes some drug OD's.
