Heroin addict exposes Drug War lies

Here's a link to an excellent post that systematically refutes a series of lies and distortions made on Fox News by Calvina Fay of Drug Free America. The post is from The Australian Heroin Diaries and written by Terry Wright, who has to be commended for his unvarnished portrayal of his own addiction.

It's a great post because it wraps up and refutes the current set of myths that prohibitionists are pushing.

Pictured are American kids orphaned because prohibitionists removed their dad, who presumably got caught with a fair quantity of drugs. It's from another Heroin Diaries post which neatly demonstrates the 'collateral damage' caused by the War on Drugs. The damage is real and horrific -- but the justifications for the WoD are, at the least, extremely debatable if not specious.
