Regulation, recovery and responsibility. Those are my Three R Code. Regulate the drug so it’s a safe use. Recovery from addiction and support. Responsibility to use said drugs in the right way. It’s a damn fact that no one will follow the ‘don’t do it’ so it’s best to decrease abuse and addiction by teaching the people safest way.

You're right. It's exactly the way that we've kept alcohol as a "problem" and not a "disaster" for a long time now.

The booze we buy is held to strict quality standards of manufacture and labelling.

Treatment and recognition of alcoholism is pervasive.

We as a society stress "responsible use".

And yeah, there are still drunks. But it's not people dying from a bad mix every other day or thousands of people rotting in jail for wanting to do shots, or money getting funneled to creating violence like it was during prohibition.

We KNOW what works, but we refuse to do it for the other drugs.

How do you regulate heroin so it's safe to use?

43

u/fahfard1 3d ago

The most immediately dangerous aspects of heroin use come from the illegal nature of the drug. Unknown doses, unknown additional drugs or other contaminants, lack of access to safe needles, unclean water or other resources used in using heroin, dealing with drug dealers, etc etc.

Only if a person survives all of those can they really seek treatment, and we have treatments for opioid use disorder.

15

u/libjones 3d ago

Just by having consistent heroin. On the street you can buy a gram of “heroin” from 2 different people and they could be wildly different potencies, if it’s properly regulated you just go buy what you need and you’re good, ODs drop dramatically overnight.

8

u/svm531 3d ago

Oxy is already regulated

51

u/Tocon_Noot_Gaming 3d ago

You mean recover? Drugs that are considered ‘hardcore’ like that shouldn’t be regulated. Getting people off of those is important. In Britain they set up places for people to go and use those drugs. It’s staffed with nurses to monitor people. Decrease in OD, relapse and a large increase of therapy to get off those drugs were the result.

I’m discussing drugs like Shrooms and Weed to be regulated. Their proven to be safe actually having a positive effect.

Not all drugs can be under regulation. However decriminalising and setting up programs to get people off those drugs are important.

30

u/DogmaJones 3d ago

Heroin doesn’t really take a toll on your body like other “hardcore” drugs. It can indeed be regulated. Eventually most people will have to move into recovery, but what kills people is unregulated doses and afflictions from unclean needles. Anhedonia is a mental consequence though.

I have first hand experience with this.

I was talking about this with some friends and there’s a lot of studies that say the cartels make around half a trillion year off the United States. Now these mega corporation cartels make so much money because they can sell black market goods on a large scale. If drugs were made legal in the U.S. would they just switch to another product that is also illegal in the U.S.?

I can’t imagine they would let a half a trillion dollar industry just die if we ended the war on drugs so would they switch to human trafficking?

Absolutely. While we would have been MUCH better off without companies like Perdue forcing a chemical addiction onto millions of people, illegality is certainly not the solution. After all restrictions cause the pipeline from Oxy to Heroin. Since Heroin is illegal it forces people into dire straits to get their fix. Methadone and Suboxone clinics have a huge positive effects on safety and recovery. While for chemically addictive substances I would probably prefer decriminalization over legalization, we still need clinics to prevent deaths.

Not starting a fight, but how is the war on drugs racist?

44

u/Rye_The_Science_Guy 3d ago

Everything started by Nixon and Reagen was almost explicitly racist. When the "drug scheduling" program was started, which ranks drugs based on how bad they are and what punishment you get for having it, crack (cocaine more popular among poor minorities) ranked higher on the list than blow (cocaine more popular among rich whites) which meant longer and more severe sentencing. I am a drug chemist and former forensic scientist so feel free to ask me more stuff about drugs.

6

u/Bruh_17 3d ago

Drug scheduling is bullshit, they literally made testosterone and all male hormones schedule III because of big sports against the advice of the DEA, FDA, AMA, NIH, and NIDA.

Also MDMA was ruled by a DEA judge to be schedule III because of possible medical uses, the DEA head made it Schedule I, then a doctor who believed In the medicinal use sued and a federal judge struck down MDMA as a schedule I.

Because the laws were put in place to directly target minorities and other political dissidents. "Hmm we've noticed marijuana use is high in the black communities, let's make it illegal. Those filthy hippies are causing issues for the Vietnam war too, let's make psychedelics illegal so we can silence them too."

The American prison system is a thinly veiled slave labour generator, just look at US prison population compared to general population and compare that to the world stats. Unless you want to tell me Americans are just inherently more deserving of prison or something.

Not to mention the penalty for crack possession is as much as 100x higher than powdered cocaine which very disproportionately affects communities of color. The high rate of drug arrests does massive damage to communities and seriously exacerbates the cycle of socioeconomic problems generation after generation even though drug use is no higher among people of color than it is among white people. We've inflicted wounds so deep it will take generations to heal even after we correct the asinine laws.

u/BigThundrr 3d ago

Hi!

Nixon and Reagan started the War on Drugs as a dog whistle that ended up incarcerating Black people, and poor whites at staggeringly high rates. This is how weed became federally illegal. Also, the conviction rates for weed between white and Black users was heavily weighted to Black people, even though usage is about the same.

Then there’s crack vs. pure cocaine. Crack was predominately used by inner city Black people, cocaine by rich white people. Incarceration rates for crack are often more harsh than for cocaine.

Then there’s the foreign policy! Reagan’s solution for drugs was to reduce supply, which is stupid because economics literally says, “High demand + low supply = more expensive drugs” and that’s how Pablo Escobar was even able to start his empire. Then you also had the illegal invasions and police actions in South America to burn the farms, and there you go!

The media angle also portrayed drug users as absolute monsters who would kill your and eat your dog if they got a chance, so incarceration was the strategy to get rid of them, rather than actual drug therapy programs.

Please watch the documentary 13th for a more coherent explanation

u/Donut_of_Patriotism 3d ago

You got a lot of answers on this, just going to add my two cents. There is a lot more to it than this but what made me realize it is racist is the outcome. They have done studies showing that white and black people use drugs at roughly the same rates, however black people are arrested and convicted for drug crimes at much higher rather than white people. In that that’s a huge reason there is such a disproportionately high amount of black and other minorities in prison.
