The following story and its related comments appeared on the Nov 19th 2News.TV site from Boise, Idaho. Although I submitted my below comment last night, it has yet to be posted. I guess my views don’t coincide with theirs? I’ve posted so you can read for yourself and comment here if you would like:
“Raise the Bottom Training and Consulting”
Shame on you. RAISE the bottom? What a joke. Methadone clinics such as the one featured here are one more failed attempt at society’s solution to drug addiction.
This belief, often referred to as harm reduction, does not work. It will never work because it is simply switching from one opiate drug to another opiate drug. Methadone clinics are popping up everywhere. The same is true for the current craze to open “medical marijuana” shops. “They’re going to keep smoking weed so we may as well give up trying to stop them; heck we might even be able to make some money here.”
Someone has been making A LOT of money selling methadone —and the same will be true with pot.
Believe it or not there are many who have just quit using dope, both legal and illegal dope.
Is it easy?
No. So what.
