Re: The 'fantasy must end'.
Jason Luty is, or should be aware, that we are already prescribing
heroin for heroin addicts in at least three different cities in the UK.
Further those people at the Home Office, whose knowledge of addiction and
the mental processes of addicts are considerably less than Jason Luty's,
are well advanced in their proposals to extend prescribing of heroin to
nurses and pharmacists; proposals that this writer understands has been
approved by the Royal College of Practitioners. It is of course
legalisation in all but name. Similar proposals are also contained in the
Alcohol and Drug Recovery
