This is a game changer. If heroin can be brewed like beer, it will be. There will be no way to control this, and this in an already rising trend of opiate drug use.  So we stand at a cross roads. We can continue the losing model we have followed for decades, an approach that is oh so profitable for corporations, law enforcement agencies, the judiciary, everyone whose budget lives on drugs, which has proven to be an an abject failure as social policy. Or we can take an entirely new compassionate and life-affirming tack, and recognize that drugs like heroin are taken by people who have issues that are so painful, drugs are the only thing offering surcease. That’s the problem, not the drugs.
