Senator Charles "I Never Saw A Microphone I Wouldn't Speak Into" Schumer says he's asking for $100 million to end the heroin scourge.  So he is serious about leaving politics and joining his niece Amy as a comedy duo.

Gunderson: Unfortunately, heroin use shot up once the government started cracking down on prescription drug abuse.

Bingo! The politicians lined their pockets with money from big pharma lobbies who wanted to use opiates in pain killers again. A practice which had stopped because of the highly physically addicting properties of the opiate based painkillers. But big pharma had a new drug called oxycontin that they needed to sell. Then once the streets were flooded with opiate addicts, due to pill mills doctor shopping and unscrupulous doctors, they cracked down on the availability and all of a sudden the millions of addicts they created are unable to get a drug that they now need to avoid becoming deathly ill. So the once popular opiate based heroin becomes the only thing that can "save" them. And now, put them in jail, to solve the problem they created.

And we just let theses people continue to lead us....

433: Riche: Wouldn't it be cheaper to legalize the stuff and let Darwin sort things out?

You would think, but, no.  The associated costs of dealing with addiction, the behavior or addicts themselves, and uh, more that I'm not in the mode to think of offhand, basically, the actual costs of addiction and the costs of addiction to society make the legalization of some drugs too much to justify.

So instead we throw them in jail which is free.

davidphogan: Didn't Portugal successfully decriminalize everything?

IIRC they decided to treat drug addiction as a public health issue, rather than a criminal offence. Dunno whether it's working, but it can't be worse than the war on drugs.
