Letter writer Tyson Campbell ought to learn a thing or two about
"free" heroin himself before he criticizes others. From a purely
economic point of view, what a person reaches into their pockets to
pay for is revealing of their desires. Do so-called addicts want
treatment or do they want drugs?

Next, not everybody believes in addiction. The theory has never been
proven. Addiction boils down to demonic possession by chemicals. Some
of us believe in free will. All behaviours are chosen.

The harm that comes from giving free heroin out to so-called addicts
is that the desires of the addict will thereafter be skewed. The
research will be skewed.

Finally, the best help for so-called addicts has always been self-help
through brotherhood type programs, and they are free.
