I am absolutely appalled to read that over 47,000 people died last year in the US from the use of heroin and other opioids.
What are our leaders thinking, leaving people to consume drugs as if they should be able to dictate what does and does not go into their bodies?
I demand that heroin be made illegal IMMEDIATELY.
Lesser narcotics should only be available by prescription. These two simple steps will ensure that next year, zero people die from drug overdose.
