Moving on from the sterilization of drug addicts topic - Dr Peter Carter, General Secretary of the Royal College of Nursing has said that giving heroin on the NHS would drive down crime. I don't have a link. My view, we cannot control drug abuse in this country. Even with our troops in Afghanistan, the war on drugs isn't fought with sufficient vigour and is proving to be a losing battle. Heroin addiction is just awful. (Incidentally, a military themed book available online by author Mark Frankland, entitled "The Cull" and probing the heroin trade is an excellent read.) The heroin related crime and distress in the UK is deeply upsetting. Consequently, I think Dr Carter is correct. Make it available and unprofitable. We're not winning the battle against it now and we don't have the determination to demonstrate the ruthlessness that would go far in eradicating its importation and distribution. This idea offers something different.
