If the UK could decouple itself from failed US drug policy ya’ll could do a lot of good work on psychedelics and safe injection really quickly within the framework of the NHS.
Yes, if only. Scotland is taking the lead with such measures but parliament is trying it’s best to stop solid harm reduction measures being allowed.
Still the UK has a lot more money and population than Scotland so it’d be the best place to work on this. If only… I never get the whole attitude of letting junkies die from politicians it’s a lot of lost years and productivity compared to harm reduction.
Politicians from all sides are totally immune from shame or regret when their policies lead to deaths, whatever it is that they’ve taken money from or the ill considered law, they don’t care and don’t intend to do anything about it.
Only reason Scotland gives a shit is with 5 million people they can’t afford too many unnecessary deaths.
Scotland has been by far the hardest hit since the psychoactive substances act became law and it’s good to see Scottish politicians for the most part understand and try do sensible things to combat the situation.
Scotland has always had a big heroin problem but they also had a lot of people who used the legal compounds who stayed away from heroin. Now everything they used is gone and they’ve turned to the one thing that’s in plentiful supply.
Awful to push everyone to heroin. Scotland is probably beholden to British policy to a large extent.
