Jason Armour's Death Shows Need for Safe, Drugs!

JUSTIN ARMOUR and the rest of us should wise up to the fact that drug prohibition did not prevent his brother Jason's death from a heroin overdose. Prohibition not only fails to prevent drug overdoses; it actually makes them commonplace.
 Overdoses were virtually unheard of when addicts could legally buy all of the pharmaceutically pure heroin, cocaine, opium and anything else they wanted at the corner drugstore.The responsibility of drug prohibition for heroin deaths is beyond dispute. In the Swiss Heroin Maintenance Program there were zero overdose deaths among the 1,146 participants receiving pure heroin in the three-year program. This proves addicts can safely use pure heroin in known doses. Drug prohibition puts bootleg poisons on the street that kill.It's long past time to come to our senses and adopt a sane drug policy. Drug prohibition has been failing for 85 years, and despite the great escalation in the past 15 years, cheaper and purer heroin and cocaine than ever are flooding our streets. For the first time we are seeing significant numbers of teen heroin overdoses all over the country.There are 38 drug-related deaths per million inhabitants in the United States, compared with 2.4 per million in the Netherlands. That's the difference sane drug policy can make.
