Re: Swiss vote on radical heroin rules

I think that the Swiss are sensible with their Heroin policy - other countries like Germany use methadone, which is a terrible thing.

Yes, heroin addiction can be cured using the "cold turkey" approach - were I addicted with it, this would be how I'd cure myself. Imposing this on another person though is a different thing, and never works - in the same way as a smoker won't be cured by taking away his fags!

Cocain/Crack addiction though is a bigger problem I feel then heroin - there is no known way to get off crack addiction.
