  1. Do poppies produce opium to protect the seeds from bugs & insects, OR is it produced as an evolutionary strategy to turn mammals into addicts who in turn, continue to keep the plants around? How do these plants know what works in our brains when they don’t have a brain??

  2. This is nonsense, the reason heroin is used in hospital for pain relief is its relative safety. You seriously think it's anything other than that?

    Heroin does however cause addiction, in a medical model as described by this goon. Tolerance and withdrawal is addiction. We could lump any drug like this, therefore any drug can cause addiction.

    Problematic use has been studied for years. To label this drug as more harmful than any other is scaremongering and naive and frankly childish.

    Addiction is addiction and has very little to do with any specific drug, the symptoms of addiction are taking drugs.

    Addiction is a wider social epidemic who's affects are dumbly categorised by idiots who say silly things like "well at least I'm not like that person there" neatly avoiding addressing their own shit out.

    Johan Hari makes some good points on this but his advocacy of Bruce Alexander's rat park study is flawed as is the study.

    William White et al all categorised addiction as a disease compounded by the use of mind changing mood altering chemicals, society of the future will condemn us for punishing people for displaying Thier symptoms.

    Before you scoff at the disease model citing a disease needs a pathogen think on this, when the disease Malaria was first encountered we thought it was caused by vapours from lakes and swamps, it wasn't till later study, backed my funding that we found it as transmitted by the mosquito and eventually we isolated the pathogenesis.

    I could go on slating this idiot but as Ken Kessey wrote "if a man really sees it then whose to say it doesn't exist"

  3. reading these comments are scary theres a lot of defensive things being said even if 15% of the things he is saying is not true most of it is lets say you try heroin or your doing something socially and somehow boom you tried heroin it doesn't mean your gonna be addicted but your gonna know what that feeling was like maybe not one week or one month or one year who knows maybe not even 5 years however your most likely going to remember what that feeling was like it might never go away and yes I know the real problem is pharmaceutical drugs but sometimes your just in the wrong place at the wrong time either mentally, physically, or both if your the Hamilton Morris type of person sure go ahead and try it but for the mass majority the best idea is just to never do it even though I don't like smoking weed try that instead of taking oxycodone for pain

  4. Anyone else besides me love the term "opium den" 😂😂😂 my gramps called my cousins room the opium parlor just because he was growing weed in his closet 😀😀😙😙😍😍🤗🤗😂😂😂

  5. You most certainly can NOT becomes in any physical way becomes addicted to heroin after 1 dose. It’s absolutely impossible. It can be very rapid and after perhaps 3 or 4 days, most certainly.
