    And what would that be. Legalize it so you can tax it..............That's not a solution. People have to want to quit.

    I would say so. Prohibition failed and so has the war on drugs. The vast majority of criminal activity is linked to drug addiction. and it is a blight on all our lives.
    Legalise it, tax it and use the revenue to set up rehab schemes to help those that can be helped. It is working in Portugal at the moment.

    Whhen was the last time you heard of heroin being produced in Latin America? Must be PTSD from your combat action on a ship.

    Not produced, but rather shipped.
