What to do with drug dealers

With prescribed Heroin, it allows an addict to live a normal life. They aren't broke, and their life isn't focused on getting the drug. This really works!! I'm on suboxone now. I still need to take a drug every day to feel quasi-normal, and I still crave heroin everyday after being clean for 1 year!, and it's like methadone, but big pharm is making billions. Nearly all pills now days are taken EVERY day. Pharms are the new big Tobacco. As for non-users trying it; it would be much harder to get because it is in a pharmacy. The real addicts would be getting it from a pharmacy, putting drug dealers out of business. And a user is very unlikely to give away any of his, especially when they make that a very large crime. Plus, the majority of people don't become addicted to heroin just because. It is to cover up something within themselves that they can't deal with, like PTSD, anxiety disorders, etc. So why not try such a thing? Heroin is extremely cheap to make. No pharmaceutical company would be able to patent it to make billions of dollars off of it. Politicians wouldn't have something to blame or use as a platform to get re-elected. Also the government loves to use drugs as a way to villanize black people! (eg. 5 grams of crack = five year sentence; 500 grams of powder cocaine = five year sentece 100:1) This country is so behind and stubborn about the drug situation. Just calling it a "War". Think about that mentality; kill, defend, death, any means necessary, us vs them. We are fighting ourselves in a never ending cycle. The only thing to do is greatly increase prevention and treatment. Don't lie to us when we are younger. The exaggerations with people killing each other after smoking pot are B.S. 99% of people who try pot have a good time, and nothing bad happens. This just makes you see that the government lies to you, and it's hard to know what to believe. So next time you try ecstacy, and it is the best feeling of your life, you don't feel any holes in your brain, you can think just fine. It progresses from there, just as it did for me. The treatment situation is sad in many parts of the country. In northern Vermont there is a one year waiting list to get on the methadone program! Plus you have to call every month to maintain your spot. That is a long long time to an addict, who needs help now! Even a suboxone program, I had to wait 3 months, and you usually have to drive far, every single day to see the DR. We need real Treatment on Demand. Studies have shown that increased prison terms don't affect the number of addicts. As I wouldn't expect it to. As a former user, I know that when you're in the hell of addiction you don't really believe you can ever get arrested. I think I have a unique perspective on things. I started life as a total straight edge. Even so, I hung out with users throughout school and HS, though I never used* (I was a binge drinker from 17-19, and that is the true gateway drug, and worse than most other drugs). I went to college and tried pot, then E, then coke and pills right up to H. I did that all in less than 1 year! I was a heavy addict for 3 years, and now i've been clean for a year. Send me a message, I love to discuss related topics.  (Apr 26, 2008 | post #73)

Possession of Heroin and Controlled Substance

I'm going to court on these charges in the next week. I hope they are lenient. I have worked my ass off, beating this monkey of my back. I have been clean and sober for about 2.5 months, longest ever. I was in rehab for 3 months and have been doing counseling 3X a week, as well as NA/AA meetings. Things have finally changed because I wanted them to. Spending 4 days in jail isn't long, but when you're in there it is the longest 4 days of your life. That has definitely been a huge deterrent to failure.  (Nov 23, 2007 | post #6)
