Switzerland Legalizes Heroin, But Still Outlaws 'Mary Jane'
In the country of Switzerland, it has been agreed that heroin will be legalized. Instead of legalized marijuana, there will be legalized heroin. On an ironic note and tone, marijuana is still outlawed in Switzerland.
This could possibly spark much outcry amongst advocates of legalized marijuana. While approving legalized heroin, they rejected legalizing marijuana at the same time.
GENEVA – The world's most comprehensive legalized heroin program became permanent Sunday with overwhelming approval from Swiss voters who simultaneously rejected the decriminalization of marijuana.
The heroin program, started in 1994, is offered in 23 centers across Switzerland. It has helped eliminate scenes of large groups of drug users shooting up openly in parks that marred Swiss cities in the 1980s and 1990s and is credited with reducing crime and improving the health and daily lives of addicts.
There is still possibly Amsterdam if you want legalized marijuana. Now, there is Switzerland if you want legalized heroin.
Overall, this decision could possibly generate much outcry.
