    As the song says "We need a new drug" but such a drug would diminsh profits for big pharma, jails, prisons , rehabs, lawyers, undertakers, counselors . The free market has no solution here
    People with long term chronic pain can be on opiods for years, even decades.

    Portugal did more than just decriminalize- as the Ted Talks YouTube above shows. On example is to take a recovering addict to an appropriate employer and tell the employer that the government will pay half his salary for a year if you give him a break. It is creating bonds for the addict, employment, and a sense of purpose.

    Can be. But shouldn't be. It $#@!s with their pain tolerance and then there is the matter of massive tolerance. That is why we truly need anew drug.

    You can blame the the drug manufacturers for creating the demand for Heroin but the government is responsible for supplying the demand.

    It would appear that everything and everyone is to blame except the individual who took the drugs.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    If the are one-dose addictive to some, and that is the claim, how can we blame them?

    How can we not blame them?

    I do not believe any drugs are one-dose addictive. It sounds like someone is setting up a lawsuit.
