“This is my profession 20+ years. Thinking that Ketamine is a "party drug" is naïve and irresponsible. This is not a safe substance. Perhaps it can help with untreatable depression, monitored very carefully by doctors at very small amounts. However to mislabel this as a "party drug" is dangerous. This does not mean that there are not people in the world who have not used this without too much issue, but this is not weed.”

“Party drug? That's a new one. Have you seen the movie "Kids"?”

“Seriously? You are basing your view of something in a movie! I've seen 30 days with Sandra bullock too. Doesn't mean I won't have a glass of wine at a party. No difference. Abuse and misuse or anything is silly.”

“A foul is different than a punch. She should lose her contract. That kind of flagrant violence has no place in sport.”

“Good for you! People do not realize that coming out as a college athlete or in other public avenues will give hope to others struggling in the shadows. People think it's a piece of cake to come out, like everyone will be supportive and not care. That kind of thinking is naïve. For every public figure that comes out, you save a life, shave of years of needless suffering for another. That's how we're going to do it, all supporting one another :-)”

“My lawyer/history prof brother was just telling me today about how greater nations have fallen into facism. Nations that think they are too powerful, untouchable to fall. What I got from him today is that he thinks this is where our country is headed. Too few people paying attention, too easily misled by fundies, too much income inequality, a decent into violence and unrest. It scared me.”

“Katie, in many ways it has already happened here in America. It started with Reagan, continued through Bush I (former NSA head), Gingrich-led House during Clinton years, then with a vengeance under Bush II, and now Obama is continuing many of the bad policies of Bush (spying, Guantanamo, for example). It would have been much worse under Romney, of course. Income inequality and overpopulation are two powerful forces that lead to a nation's downfall, in my humble opinion. Yet economic conservatives want to lower taxes on the rich (trickle down economics) and the fundamentalists want "more souls for Jesus" and continue to deny women the right to make their own reproductive choices and have access to contraception and family planning.”

“You could and should never, never, never legalize Heroin. It is the Devil, pure and simple. So many MORE people would be destroyed. It is not anything that people should ever experiment with. It is not a "recreational drug", even though I hate that term.”

“Addiction has always existed, it will always continue to exist. Heroin is NOT new and not because of liberals. This escalation of poppy production is due to Bush and Cheney starting illegal wars. Heroin is incredibly powerful and it is the CONSERVATIVES who are cutting addiction treatment, mental health treatment, trying to privatize everything and building more and more prisons. Addictions treatment saves $7 for very $1 spent, yet conservatives STILL insist they can arrest their way out of addiction. And by the way, Heroin has been crushing many areas in it's latest uprising since the early 90's. So this is NOT something that has suddenly emerged since Obama was elected. Heroin is certainly not a drug that suddenly emerged in the 70's either. It is stronger TODAY, as is marijuana, compared to 20 or 30 years ago. People in the know realize that without treatment, education, support, addiction and untreated mental health issues will continue to trap people in the permanent underclass. It's very unfortunate that the ideal of "rugged individualism" that exists in this country keeps people ignorant on VERY real brain illnesses like addiction and mental illness. As long as people refuse to learn, just suck up reality TV and other trash like mindless drones, and believe everything that is force fed them via Faux News, nothing will ever change. Until...maybe it happens to them or someone they love. Heroin is the DEVIL. Just pray no one you ever know gets involved with it.”

“You are right. We should do better. Treatment works, but ppl would rather lock up addicts. Marijuana is more potent, heroin is more potent, kids are starting younger, and of course with cellphones and social media - it is MUCH easier to get your hands on whatever you want. Teenage curiosity, invincibility coupled with the archaic ideas that addiction=simply a choice=jail only as the answer isn't helping matters. Jails and prisons are modern day mental institutions. And addiction is intensified and more likely with a family history, environmental risk, mental health issues (including untreated ADD/ADHD), abuse histories, early age of onset.”

“Baltimore is crushed by Heroin. I've heard every ten years it flip-flops - stimulant, depressive. But the Heroin of today is incredibly strong, you don't need to start with a needle so they feel somehow it's "safer". Many people progress to Heroin by using pills first - Oxycontin, Percocet. It's horrifically addictive, and the ultimate emotional painkiller. It is not uncommon here to see rich kids driving into Baltimore City for Heroin. Addiction does not spare the wealthy. Ecstasy can also be cut with Heroin, as well as stimulants. Sometimes people with horrific abuse histories are also sometimes drawn to Heroin, but then as they are addicted have to prostitute themselves (women and men) to feed their addiction. Trauma on top of trauma on top of trauma. Their very souls are destroyed. It's a life of horror really - for the addicts and of course all who surround them. Treatment works, but some will never get better because that is the nature of addiction.”

“Yes, another poster mentioned the prescription drug-progressing-to-herion thing, I was unfamiliar with that. I've mostly heard of people just continuing to abuse those, but I don't have a ton of anecdotal experience. It's just strange because growing up in a relatively affluent place I would have NEVER guessed heroin would be a thing, like I said I wouldn't be surprised with people (adults and teenagers) doing cocaine, but like you said it flip-flops. Of course weed was a huge thing too but I sort of feel like that's perpetual teen culture, and 90% of people who smoke weed don't have debilitating addiction problems. It's been strange to go back to my hometown and see a sign for a needle exchange because of the heroin problems, and hearing stories of death by overdose. I have no problem with needle exchanges, I think they acknowledge the reality of drug use and attempt to mitigate some really devastating consequences like infections, etc. I guess growing up heroin seemed like kind of an older generation of rock star's drug, and like you said it seems to have flip-flopped. It really is tragic. I have no theoretical problem with adults using substances-it's their body-but hardcore drug use always seems to stem from other either emotional/psychological problems and/or socioeconomic hardships, and it's a shame. We should do better as a society.”
