In the STV news the headline is 600 Scottish junkies overdosed last year.

I love it when they start with a feelgood story!

The govt is making cuts and forcing people off methadone. Crime and hospital admissions will rise.
Yes but 600 junkies are dead, surely it is just the start.

The figures will be to slur methadone and the deaths will be due to polydrug use. They'll wheel Prof Mckeganey out to support them but disregard NICE and DOH guidelines.
Methadone is a very safe drug with over sixty years of evidence.

Thye said out of the 600, at least 280 were on Methodone when they died. I dont know enough about its use to know if that is a factor?

And as its the Naafi, lets hope this is a trend that will grow and grow!

Methadone, one of your five a day

For the drug alone about 9 GBP for 500ml. Therapeutic dose between 60-120mg/ml daily.
And they will get twice that on the street when they sell it, the LHCO has loads of supervised prescriptions where the junkies have to take it in front of the pharmacist so they don't try and sell it.

And the govt have reduced payments to pharmacies by about a quarter. That'll work well.

So, a £15 a week methadone habit you say?

Cheaper than Carlsberg.

Where do you get it?
Try again. Jack Straw commissioned a report into the costs of crime when he was Justice Secretary. Sixty grand a year for the average junkie and you can treble that if they have kids that need to be taken into care.
