Yea it's a tough one, I've got some close friends who are 1st responders, medical and fire dept in NH and more than 9/10 calls are heroin OD's. Often the users whose lives were just saved are mad that the Narcan ruined their high. it's wild - people will have 5, 10 near misses, same person. They don't arrest them because you don't want to make people afraid to call for help when someone is dying but at the same time how do you get people help, what's the incentive to stop? Like tipping the chair back to see how far you can go and then relying on the fire department to catch you when you pass the tipping point is not good for users or the services. It's a tough one. heroin sucks. but I really applaud decriminalization from the perspective that far too often someone whose life could still be righted is sent to jail and irrevocably destroyed- I think social programs is a very important one, I think a justice system that focuses on rehabilitation rather than punishment (and profit) is a critical piece, but beyond that there needs to be some focus on the social communal aspects of drug abuse too. Like when all your friends and all you leisure is drugs, what do you do when you quit? If you don't know what else to do, have nobody else to quit with, you're doomed to repeat. I don't know how to promote quitting with friends but I think for the folks I've known who have beaten that addiction the key component wasn't the fear of punishment or the fear of death or the cost or any of that, but just the ability to find friends to quit with or support alternate healthy hobbies
