Surely, you are familiar with the side effects of stopping heroin use cold turkey

A brief, relevant article.

Talking about drugs?
Everyone says stop then they use a drug.
I don't get it.

nothing, but does a drug need to be exploited like a potato for that reason?

Do you feel the same way about alcohol as well? The reason I can think of to allow the safer drugs to be exploited by a more general group would be for economic reasons.

we have those facilities here in NL. but little different.
people can get their drugs for free there so that the criminality they cause for obtaining these drugs are not needed anymore. instead for paying for the drugs they have to work 3-4 hours. the usual work is public cleaning or re-sticker products. those mindless jobs, so to say...
it helps with several problems. 1. criminality 2. public drug use and the waste of it. 3. all drugs are used with clean needles and such. 4. when someone go's bad there is medical help nearby. (less deaths cause of it) 5. cleaner city. and 6. work that no1 wants to do gets done.
for this last reason does the government get paid for by the companies delivering the work. and it is enough to pay the drugs with. and then the cycle is round. =)

That's a pretty good idea to have people do grunt work as a means of payment.

On the topic of heroin, it is actually used in hospitals under the name 'diamorphine.' It replaces morphine as a painkiller due to the decreased number and severity of side affects.

yes. for example: a max amount of alcohol you can buy for personal use. if you have a party you can get a free license to have more. no more store sales except for "public" wholesale stores and bars/clubs/etc.
you would still be allowed to consume alcohol, but this way we can hold track of those who are about to become addicted. and do something befor it's to late. kinda what casinos have to do for their clients. dont restrict them but advise them, talk with them. also will the sales of alcohol be better regulated so that under age people can't buy it so easy.

The reason I can think of to allow the safer drugs to be exploited by a more general group would be for economic reasons.

without looking at what the causes will be? all only for the money?
i'm a capitalist as you probably know, so yes i do understand the point of view. but i think there are better ways of exploiting it for the government. that will still allow everyone to use it but also will discourage people from using it. like the cigaret industry is discouraging people from using their product. "we allow you to use it, but you better dont."

So if I want to get wasted by myself I can't, but if I have friends over to get wasted its ok? And how would this "max ammount" be determined? Two pints of beer might have little affect on a big man, but could completely inebriate a small women, each having differing metabolisms.

no. you can buy is from "public" wholesale stores. it are wholesale stores where the public is allowed in and where you can also buy a 6-pack of beer. (you dont have to buy a minimum of a whole pallet, like normal in wholesale stores) it's nothing new. they already exist. the only thing is. to be allowed to buy from them you have to get registered... so we can follow how many beer you will be buying...

And how would this "max ammount" be determined? Two pints of beer might have little affect on a big man, but could completely inebriate a small women, each having differing metabolisms.

5 beer is enough to get anyone wasted. so a max of 7 would be good i think..
these max ammount is just a little step. not something you should get your foot in. it can be changed when it turns out to be to less or to many... here in NL you are allowed to buy a max of 5 gram marijuana, it's enough for personal use, for anyone. sure there can be found a max amount for alcohol aswel. it really is no problem.

Oh boy, one more place we have to register! So other people can monitor our behaviour, so people who drink alcohol will have to pay higher insurance taxes! Yes!

I think I am in favour of a controlled sale of drugs and alcohol, but I wouldn't want to register for that. No, we need something else.

Just have your buddies bring a pack too. Everyone could still get plastered.

Buying =/= using and using =/= buying, so it would be difficult to prove.
