Heroin cheaper than six-pack of beer

April 14, 2009

More proof prohibition has completely failed and has caused the exact opposite effect:

CNN Story

Law enforcement officials say a tiny, one-dose bag of heroin, costing $5-$10, is cheaper than highly controlled synthetic opiates like Oxycontin or Hydrocodone — and easily accessible to teenagers.

Looks like the legal method of obtaining opiates actuyally makes it harder to get them. hmmm….

“Unfortunately, today, a bag of heroin can be cheaper than a 6 pack of beer,” said John Gilbride, Special Agent in Charge of the Drug Enforcement Agency’s New York Field Division.

Be sure to vote on in their legalization poll to legalize all drugs.

And this cheap heroin is deadlier than ever, according to the National Drug Intelligence Center. Unlike a generation ago, when the street drug was less than 10 percent pure — today’s version can be upwards of 70 percent pure. Teenagers are snorting it, smoking it in joints, and getting hooked faster, and overdosing more.

Hmm… it got more powerful? Even though we are spending more money than ever to enforce the failed prohibition laws?

On Long Island’s Nassau County, where the Ciappas live, police made 211 heroin-related arrests in 2008. So far in the first three months of this year, police say, they have made 135 such arrests.

Geez, talk about cruel. That is 346 people who had a serious medical problem – heroin addiction, that now have a serious medical condition and in addition a very serious legal problem. That is 346 people who lost their right to vote out the people who unjustly prosecuted them because of a felony.
