Heroin was legal in Britain until 1956!!!
"In fact, as the Times editorial states, in 1955 there were only 317 addicts to "manufactured" drugs in the whole of Britain, of which just 15% were dependent on heroin. That's a national total of 47.5 heroin addicts. History, regrettably, does not record the precise circumstances of the half-addict."
Little bit different now isn't it?
Do you really think people would break into people's houses and cars to get money for drugs if they were legal? Are YOU going to start taking them if they were legalised???
