nekom: R.A.Danny: Marcus Aurelius: Thunderpipes: This is why I do not believe in addiction, only in stupidity. If I can stop drinking, even thought it is awesome and I love it, then people don't have to mutilate their bodies. How about just not doing it?

You have obviously never been addicted to heroin.

He's probably too smart to put stuff from unknown strangers in his veins.

Look, nobody is arguing that any junkie out there is somehow unaware that they are slowly (or quickly) killing themselves.  But honestly, do you think a lot of junkies started from where they are now?  It takes a lot of time to go from smoking heroin with some weed once or twice at a party to selling your body to get enough heroin to get through the day without getting sick.  I'm not saying they didn't bring it on themselves, but have a little empathy.  Some of them CAN be saved, if public policy treats this as a public health crisis rather than a criminal affair.

The good thing about Krokodil is that you don't stay addicted to it for very long.

Cold_Sassy: Marcus Aurelius: fireclown: I would think that the illegality of drugs would increase the social unacceptableness of hard drugs

I used to know quite a few people that only drank during prohibition.  They did it for the kicks.

Prohibition ended in 1933.  How old are you?

You shouldn't make fun of people who are XCVIII.

Similar to morphine or heroin, krokodil is made by mixing codeine with substances like gasoline, paint thinner, oil or alcohol.

There's your problem. You need to use healthy ingredients, like sulfuric acid, plutonium, or raw sewage.

Krokodil? "New drug"? This must be some radically different use of the word "new" with which I was previously unfamiliar.
