That's fact, every journalistic or medical journal written on the subject of drug use comes up with exactly the same story. More recently Johhan Harri & " Chasing the Scream ", makes you wonder who is profiting from global prohibition for there to be so much propaganda & mis-information which is repeated time after time to be so widespread that the truth never comes out. AMCD experts who disagree with Gov. sacked. Now we have some Police Commissioners handing out sharps & amps, surely the truth will come out when we have Police agreeing nationwide that the biggest harm to drug users is Prohibition....or will they just get sacked, made fools of also.

There was actually massive 'success' (depending on how you judge it) from diamorph prescribing. 40% of patients eventually stayed drug free, which is 10x the government's numbers of 4% for methadone/bupe.

Although if they actually prescribed methadone optimally I know they would see much better rates of patients drug free/in employment etc etc. Giving out more TH's to stable patients and dosing them properly would also massively aid the employment issue, just look at America/Canada.

Did you see on the news OP about Scotland having higher drug deaths than Europe and America?

Makes me wonder is it because they listened to twats like McKegany and either forced folk to reduce or kept them on painfully low doses?
