parent of drug user

 I agree that there should be drugs such as heroin legalised and distributed in a safe way. Methadone as a substitute causes more deaths than heroin and is a worse addiction. I have seen this first hand.When a drug addict needs help , its needed right away, putting on a waiting list when deperate is no answer. I honestly think that Rehabs should be built in every major city or town so that help is available soonest rather than later. I hope that this will happen as it will take lots of cr ime off the table and run out the dealers who make money out of peoples misery, threatening and killing daughters and sons    who are addicted and effects all families all over. Big time dealers should be charged with murder when discovered that they suplied and addict who has od`d with dirty heroin etc. The law is to  soft on dealers. I have read  sugestions     about age limits on drug users getting heroin instead of methadone. Addiction has no age limits. Treat when needed, not Make a 15 year old wait till 25 for treatment or clean heroin. Many are dead by that time.Treat it as an illness like alcoholism is and treat the person.some addicts have had terrible lives that made them take drugs to shut it out. help not criticism is needed

Why is this idea important?

 I believe it should be up  to pubs and restraunts, cafes and other public places whether to ban smoking.  But as long as there are places set aside for smokers and well ventillated. Its a sad day when we have to live our lives and choices through a law which can  be changed to accomodate everyone. Smokers shouldnt be treated like criminals and lepers just because they smoke. After all , the government makes enough money out of  tobacco in tax. Pubs and clubs etc have lost trade and many closed down because of this law. Give  people the free choice again.
