Found this article in todays Sunday World.Fair play to the people who picketed this play, its sick that this man who has done so much damage to young people in Lower Crumlin and the South Inner City is doing a play about child abuse.
Yeah he was burnt out of Dolphin House for selling Heroin to local kids so he built a big house off Sundrive Rd in Crumlin which has been shot at many times and was marched on many times in the 90s.can someone give a bit of background on this guys criminal past?
If Class A drugs were legalised there would be people robbing to pay for them just the same, and there would be billionaires not millionaires profiteering off their misery.Ah well if drugs were legalised ruthless individuals like your man wouldn't be a multi millionaire.
It would take away the market from organised crime and the manufacture of drugs would be properly regulated, quite frankly that story that came out in the paper I couldn't care less about all the scummy little junkies who are stupid enough to take heroin.And what would be good about legalising drugs?
Hasn't the government been running anti smoking campaigns since the 1980's, usage would probably eventually go down as the market will be properly regulated and lets face reality in Ireland Irish people don't like following rules.This really is a hard call,certainly if you legalise all drugs you would diminish the market of the drug lords but you could be sending out the message to young people that drugs are "cool" and that they are not dangerous.
personally i dont agree with , or am not yet convinced , with the argument for total legalisation of all drugs .This really is a hard call,certainly if you legalise all drugs you would diminish the market of the drug lords but you could be sending out the message to young people that drugs are "cool" and that they are not dangerous.
Have to agree with most of that, the present structures are not working.personally i dont agree with , or am not yet convinced , with the argument for total legalisation of all drugs .
I am however completely convinced that the only logical and dignified manner in which to approach the particular drug which has wreaked most havoc - heroin - is for it to be legalised under medical supervision for registered addicts . That odes not mean all drugs should be legalised . Simply that people who have a registered illness - a heroin addiction - should have the most effective and dignified treatemnt for it . Medical grade heroin under supervision and counselling .
Its obvious you don't care. If one of them was a child of yours you might change your mind.It would take away the market from organised crime and the manufacture of drugs would be properly regulated, quite frankly that story that came out in the paper I couldn't care less about all the scummy little junkies who are stupid enough to take heroin.
The war on drugs is unwinnable, stop trying to fight an unwinnable war.
That is all rational, except it leaves out capitalism. If legalised, do you think production would go up or down?well if a heroin addict could go to a doctor for a supply of medical grade heroin he/she'd be a lot less likely to mug others , rob from others cars and houses, enage in degrading prostitution or sell heroin on the streets to pay for his/her illness . That in turn would cut down a great deal on peoples insurance and home security costs , chronic shoplifiting , overcrowded jails , legal aid , lawyers fees etc . Society would imensely benfit from this almost immediately .
A supply of medical grade heroin which costs literally buttons to produce would also be much more healthy for that person , who as long as they could keep their addiction treated by a medical pharmacuetical would be able to lead a life whereby they were contributing to society as opposed to damaging it with anti social behaviour . Bar its addictiveness heroin itself isnt actually bad for you , all the crap and germs that goes into illegal heroin is . Heroin leaves your system very quickly -within 48 hrs theres barely a trace - and is non toxic except in massive doses .
This would in turn greatly ease the expense incurred by our health service in treating ailments such as hepatitis , HIV , aids , skin infections , gangrene amuptations etc which are genrally involved in the consumption of heroin thats been smuggled half way accross the world up half a dozen different peoples ars*holes before being cut with rat posion , brick dust and god knows what else prior to subcutaneous injection into a persons blood stream.
Not to mention the frequent physical injuries that go hand in hand with a life of petty crime and prostitution - beatings , stabbings etc .
Thens theres the massive illegal profits the dealers accrue , their need to take over entire streets and estates to protect the turf from which those profits are accrued . Which entails guns , gangsters , hitmen , rithless intimidation of ordinary citizens , recruiting disadvantaged youngsters directly into a get rich quick life of crime and gangster culture . Which pretty much f*cks your area up big style . Leads to more hoplessness and despair , which of course leads to more drug abuse and all the ills which go with it.
heroin addiction is an illness . Whats wrong with treating an illness ? why must such treatment be illegal when theres absolutely no cost to society from treating it with medical grade pharmacueticals , which happen to be called heroin - a mere opiate derivative like many others which are currently legal to treat people with ? like heroin itself once was until people started using it recreationally .
