Heroin for Heroin Addicts in Britain!

Treating heroin addicts by giving them heroin might seem counterintuitive. But for some of the most hardened addicts, administering heroin in supervised clinics may just do the trick where detox and methadone have failed.

Why not just lock them in a room together for a month?

i think this is a better method than locking them up without help.
unless of course you think they're all worthless and should die, then locking them up would be better.

errr i'm addicted to marijuana, can anyone help me?

Concluded it was cheaper to control their habit, reduce risk (from crime to acquire money for heroin), and costs 1/3rd of what it costs to have the individual in jail.

Damn, it makes sense... It's a wonder why they didn't think of doing this like 20 years ago
