I did not do well on this quiz.


I'm a big fan of legalization. But I can't endorse it for heroin and her pharmaceutical sister. Pretty much everything else including morphine and codeine et al., I think you should be able to make your own (even if they're stupid) decisions, and spend your life however you want as long as you're not hurting anyone else. But with heroin you lose the ability to choose. It takes over a part of you and forces you to do things. You become a hollow liar who will hurt everyone you love. There is a very very narrow way back that most people fall from, and there's not much else to say about it.

It's just too good of a drug. It makes you feel the literal best that you CAN even feel as a human, and then holds you there for hours. Then you're expected to come back to real life satisfied. It's just not possible for most people. Imagine the way you feel when your kid wins state, or when you have sex with a beauitful person that you connect with on a deep level. And now imagine that those feelings are so insignificant to someone who has tried heroin that they never care if they see them again. That's how good heroin is. It's killed a lot of people around me. It killed my aunt after 10 years of sobriety. It killed a girl who grew up on my street and used to beat up my sister. It just kills, and people know this, and they still can't stop taking it because it is so amazing. How do you compete with that?
